Hornet Soccer shuts out Troy, 5-0.

The Wellsboro Varsity Boys Soccer team won their second consecutive straight game as they shut out Troy, 5-0 on Monday, September 22.

Sophomore Josiah Hill scored the two unassisted goals, the first coming at 12:40 and the second at 15:04, to put the Hornets up 2-0. Senior Brieux Thibaut scored two goals, one unassisted and one assisted by Senior Gillan Alafoginis, and Sophomore Jacob Singer scored off an assist from Junior Dawson Prough.

Senior Jake Mitchell made 7 saves in goal.

"I was very happy with our first half performance," said John Shaffer. "We passed the ball well and caught Troy with a couple of counter attacks and were able to possess the ball and build a couple of very good team attacks."

With the win, the Hornets improve to 7-1 (7-1 NTL). The team will be back in action on Wednesday, September 24 as they travel to Liberty.
