The landscape of high school sports in Pennsylvania will have a brand new look next year.
MANSFIELD — Entering the year the Wellsboro Green Hornets knew what people outside of the town were thinking.
ATHENS — A handful of missed opportunities and a lack of answers for the Montoursville Warriors' packed arsenal of weapons saw the Athens Wildcats’ district hopes flutter and fade in a 38-14 loss Friday night in the District 4 Class AA semifinal.
MANSFIELD — Third time's the charm for head coach Matt Hildebrand who led Wellsboro to its first district playoff victory in program history in his third season with the Hornets.
CATAWISSA — A consensus underdog as the No. 8 seed playing at perennial state power and top seed Southern Columbia on Friday, Troy started out well and appeared to be successfully executing a well-designed game plan early in the first quarter.
SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT — In the opening round of the District Four Class A Football Championships, the North Penn-Mansfield Panthers defeated the hosting South Williamsport Mountaineers 28-14.
ATHENS — It was Aaron Barry and company that gave Athens the late fourth-quarter lead, but it was the Wildcats' collective defense that stood tall through wind, rain and two late Danville opportunities Friday night, as Athens advanced in the playoffs with a 20-17 win.
SAYRE — Athens' quarterback Aaron Barry overcame two early interceptions to put up 170 yards and two scores and the Wildcats' defense gobbled up a plethora of Sayre running backs, all in a convincing 52-9 win over the Redskins Friday night, a win that finishes the regular season and sees the Rusty Rail stay in Athens.
The Cowanesque Valley football team ended the season with a 41-13 loss at Otto-Eldred on Friday night.
BLOSSBURG — After two overtimes, and plenty of drama, Friday's matchup between Wellsboro and North Penn-Mansfield came down to an extra point.
The Canton Warriors played host to the Troy Trojans during rivalry week in the final week of the regular season.

WESTFIELD — Canton scored in every quarter on their way to a 42-7 win over Cowanesque Valley on Friday night.
SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT — It was the type of play that could swing the momentum one way or the other. South Williamsport, holding a 14-0 lead, had called its final timeout of the half and had the ball at the Sayre 1 yard line on third down with just a few seconds left in the first half.
WYALUSING — North Penn outlasted Wyalusing last night for a 22-8 win at Peterman Stadium.
