Four first half goals led the Wellsboro Varsity Girls Soccer team to a shut out victory over rival North Penn-Mansfield during Senior Night on Wednesday, October 12.

There was no JV game.

"It has been quite a year as we have worked to build a team that is not only skilled at playing the game of soccer but as importantly and maybe more importantly, building a team where each player values and is valued by every one of their teammates," said head coach Jason Gehman. "Our seniors, Kate DeCamp, Molly Ingerick, Lindsey Benedict, Jordyn Abernathy, and Rylie Boyce have really lead by example and helped me set the tone for what we want to be: a competitive and close-knit team. I am honored to be their coach."

Four different Lady Hornets scored on the evening while sophomore Annie Gehman stopped both shot attempts by the Lady Tigers.

Not even 4 minutes into the contest Ingerick scored on an own goal off a corner kick to put Wellsboro on the scoreboard. Six minutes later senior Lindsey Benedict found the back of the net off Ingerick's corner kick to make it 2-0. With 15:28 remaining DeCamp scored on an Abernathy assist to push the lead to 3-0, then two minutes later senior Rylie Boyce converted a penalty kick to make it 4-0.

The Lady Hornets out shot Mansfield 18-2 and had a 10-0 advantage in corner kicks.

The win snaps a three-game losing streak and improves the Lady Hornets to 6-9-1 (5-6 NTL). The team is back on the field on Saturday against Milton.
