Lady Hornets fall to CV in final game.
 

The Wellsboro Middle School Girls Basketball team dropped their final regular season game to Cowanesque Valley on Saturday, March 11.

The young Lady Hornets trailed 3-2 after the first quarter then CV started to pull away with 5 points in the second quarter, while holding Wellsboro scoreless, to lead 8-2 at halftime. Wellsboro managed to make some shots in the third, but still trailed 14-6 after the third. The wheels fell off in the fourth as CV outscored Wellsboro 11-3 for the 25-9 victory.

"We struggled with Cowanesque’s 1-3-1 zone and had too many unforced turnovers," said head coach D. "We got some good looks at the basket, but only made 3-of-28 shots in the game.On top of that, we were in foul trouble early."

Kiyah Boyce, Lindsey Marmara, Bailey Monks, and Emma Pietropola had 2 points each and Sarah Mosher finished with 1 point.

The game is the last Middle School game for six Lady Hornets.

"It is a tough way to end our season, but looking back, the girls accomplished a lot and I am very happy with the progress they all made throughout the year. I wish our 8th graders all the best as they move into the high school program," concluded Morris.

Wellsboro's B team won an abbreviated game 15-8.

The Lady Hornets finish the year with an 11-11 record.
