Athens picked up their second win of the year Friday night, shutting out Wellsboro, 42-0. The game was played under damp conditions, but the Hornet offense was unable to put any points on the board. Athens returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown, and never looked back the rest of the game. The Wellsboro offense looked good at times, but inconsistent play and up front pressure caused the Hornet's offense to sputter.
Canton was able to notch their first win in the NTL Friday night in their game against Wellsboro. Canton was able to score early in the first half, but then allowed the Hornets to get back into the game with a costly fumble on their own five-yard line. The Hornet defense played tough in the second quarter, but a long screen play allowed Canton to kick a field goal before time expired in the first half. Canton's defense was able to withstand the Hornet's offense, and held on to win the contest, 17-7.
