Tigers Going To The Play-offs
While other area schools are getting ready for basketball and wrestling the Wellsville Tigers are preparing for their first play-off game in 10 years. It will be the Tigers vs the Tigers. On Saturday the Wellsville Tigers travel down Route 7 to take on the Shadyside Tigers at Fleming Field. Game time is 7 PM.
The Wellsville team wrapped up their regular season schedule with a 30-6 win over ITCL rival Jackson Milton this past Friday. It was Senior Night. Wellsville finished the season with a 5&5 record. That win landed the Orange & Black in the number 7 spot in the final OHSAA Division VI – Region 21 poll. The top 8 teams go to the play-offs. Shadyside finished their regular season schedule with a 7&3 record winding up in the Number 2 spot in Region 21.
Tickets will be sold at the high school on Friday, November 4, from 9:30 AM to 1 PM and again from 3 to 5:30 PM. They will also be on hand Saturday from 10 AM until noon. Tickets cost $7 if you buy them ahead. The price jumps to $9 if you buy them at the game. The Wellsville Touchdown Club will be on hand selling play-off shirts in the high school office.
The Shadyside Boosters Club will be holding a tailgate party two hours before the game according to the newspapers. If you're going dress warmly. The temperature is suppose to drop down to near freezing once the sun goes down. Google maps says it takes about one hour and 14 minutes to cover the 50 miles down Route 7. Fleming Field is located on W. 38th Street in Shadyside, OH.
If you're not making the trip Joe & Roger will be broadcasting the game on the internet WHS Sports Station. That can be found at www.wellsvillealumni.com. The game will be shown on WTOV Channel 9 Sunday at noon.

Good Luck Wellsville Tigers...
