Junior High Hornets fall to Athens

The Wellsboro Junior High Football team suffered a 36-6 loss to Athens on Thursday, September 1 to start their season.

Syler Pietrzyk had Wellsboro's lone touchdown in the fourth quarter.

"Athens is a tougher football team right now. They clearly wanted the game more and it showed in their effort," head coach Shane Mascho said. "Our guys have to figure a lot out. They were in position to make a lot of tackles, but just didn't sell out to make the play. We have to be able to snap the football and vary the count on offense. The small window we were able to do that, we moved the football."

The Hornets are back in action next week at home against Montgomery.
