Wellsboro wins first round of district play

Carson Davis controlled the Hornets district game from the mound with eight strikeouts.

The Wellsboro Hornets concluded the regular season with two wins in their final three games. The Hornets followed a 1-0 win against Northeast Bradford Thursday with a dominant 17-3 victory at home against Wyalusing Valley Friday night in the first half of a double-header.

The win against the Rams showcased the Wellsboro offense at its very best. The Hornets recorded 16 hits. Carson Davis was perfect from the plate with four hits in four at bats, three RBIs and three runs scored. Silas Wagaman was equally productive with three hits and three RBIs.

But, after two quality wins, Wellsboro fell to Danville in the second half of Friday night’s double header. The Hornets conceded five runs in the loss, marking the first time since May 10, the Hornets allowed more than four runs in a game.

There was little time to be hung up on the last game of the regular season. District play began Monday night in Troy where the Hornets demolished the Trojans 11-0 in five innings.

Davis recorded eight strikeouts and allowed just three hits to lead Wellsboro past a Troy team that entered districts with a 12-8 record.

Davis also led the team at the plate with three hits and two RBIs.

Billy Lechler also had three hits for the Hornets with two RBIs and two runs scored.

Cam Tennis had a solid night at the plate, going 2-for-4 with two runs scored.

Following the victory Wellsboro traveled to number one seed Montoursville Wednesday night.
