Wellsville Tigers Bow Out Of The Play-offs

Saturday – November 5: The 2011 WHS Tiger's Football Team did something this past Saturday afternoon that no other Wellsville high school football team has done in the past ten years. They went to the first round of the Ohio High School Athletic Association play-offs. They loaded up the bus and traveled down the river to take on the Shadyside Tigers, an old Buckeye Border Conference foe, in the OHSAA Regional Quarterfinals.

The scoring didn't quite go the way we would have liked. It was a tough game for the Wellsville crew. There was 3:02 left in the second quarter before Wellsville got on the boards making the score, at that point, Shadyside 28-Wellsville 6. Shadyside was opening up some unbelievable holes and their speedy backs were burning up some real estate.

Regardless the final score being Shadyside 46-6 the hometown folks are very proud of the Wellsville team. As they did all season they never quit and conducted themselves like true sportsmen right down the line.

Congratulations and good luck to the Shadyside team. Shadyside will take on Youngstown Christian next Saturday in the Regional Semi-finals at New Philly's Woody Hayes Quaker Stadium. Youngstown Christian has a 10&1 record on the year and are seeded #3 in the region.

Congratulations also to the Wellsville Tigers. Thanks for a great season of football...
