The Wellsboro Middle School Boys Basketball team picked up their fifth straight win with a 33-15 victory over Liberty on Friday, March 4.

The Hornets jumped out to an early 17-0 lead in the first quarter and led 24-5 at the end of the half, but Liberty outscored Wellsboro 10-9 in the second.

"I thought we played a great first half and the second half we let up a little bit and lost our intensity," said head coach Jason Greenfield.

Billy Lechler scored a team-high 15 points to lead the Hornets, while Joseph Grab scored 7, Karter Witmer had 5, and Dylan Tomb pitched in 3.

Wellsboro won the B game 19-16 with Will Poirier, Nathan Heath, and Zach Singer all scoring 4 points each.

The win improves the Hornets' record to 10-3 on the year. The team will be back in action on Monday, March 7 on the road at Cowanesque Valley.
