The Middle School Hornets fell short of an exciting comeback and fell to Towanda, 16-8.

The Green Hornets offense stalled on their drives through the first half. The Towanda Black Knights used a series of reverses and counters along with good field positioning to score in the second quarter, making the score 8-0. The Hornets put together a successful drive prior to halftime, but time ran out, leaving the score 8-0.

The Black Knights mounted one successful drive in the second half, making the score 16-0.

Quinn Henry and the Wellsboro passing game fired on all cylinders in the fourth quarter. Quinn completed passes to Parker Jones and Cole Cavanaugh before setting up a run into the end zone by Henry. The two-point conversion was complete on a pass to Parker Jones.

The ensuing onside kick was recovered by the Green Hornets, but the ball did not travel the required 10 yards. Towanda ran a few more plays as the clock expired.

With the loss, the team falls to 3-4 and will be back in action next Thursday, November 1 as they wrap up the 2012 season against rival North Penn.
