Domination. Webster defines it as "the ruling or controlling by superior power" or "rising high above." Either definition you care to use, the word most aptly describes what the Wellsboro Hornet football team did to Columbia Montour Vo-Tech Friday night at Wellsboro.

When the smoke cleared, Wellsboro came away with a 52-6 victory, their third straight and fifth in six games.

This one was over early as the Hornets ran out to a 21-0 first quarter lead on three touchdown runs which totalled 127 yards from scrimmage.

Ian Carson scored the first two on runs of 62 and 20 yards. Late in the opening period, Jared Mahon added the third score on a 45 yard jaunt. Three Ché Regina extra points later, the rout was on.

In the second quarter, Carson broke loose and scored on a 73 yard run. The extra point kick was blocked to make the score 27-0.

Regina booted a 20 yard field goal just before the half to up the Hornet lead to 30-0 by intermission.

The third stanza saw more of the same as Mahon ran one in from 19 yards out and Steve Davis scored on a two yard run. A Regina extra point and Erick Crawford's two-point conversion run made it 45-0 entering the fourth quarter.

That quarter remained scoreless until late when Columbia Montour Vo-Tech scored on a 12 yard pass from quarterback Denny Lewis to Shawn Crist with just under two minutes left to play.

The Hornets took about a minute to drive the field one last time Matt Kennedy went the final 55 yards down the Wellsboro sideline to make the final 52-6.

Carson put up some unbelieveable numbers, in a short time. The senior running back earned the ball only six times but gained 220 yards, an average of 36.7 yards per attempt. Three of his six runs ended in the end zone.

Mahon added 121 yards on seven carries for a 17.3 per tote average The team averaged 16.4 yards per carry for the entire game, gaining 426 yards on only 26 tries.

Wellsboro quarterback Jay Young completed one pass in three attempts, a five yarder to Regina.

This week, the Hornets travel to Troy for a Friday night game versus the Trojans. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. Wellsboro's last regular season game is the following Friday, November 4 at home against Wyalusing at 7:30 p.m.
