Wellsville Tigers Go 1&1 This Past Week-end

The WHS Tiger men had a busy week-end of basketball on the road playing two long time backyard rivals.

On Friday evening they traveled out Route 39 to take on the Southern Local Indians. The Reserves had an impressive win beating the Indians by a score of 51-28. The varsity game was a renewal of the hard played rivalry it always seems to be with the young Wellsville squad coming up short in the final minute of the game. Up until then they played right along with the Indians and for much of the game had the lead on the score board. The final was Southern 51-46.

The Tigers got back in the win column Saturday night when they traveled down the river to take on the Toronto Red Knights. We didn't make that trip but from the newspapers we see the Tigers never trailed at the end of any quarter and came home with a 79-47 victory. The Reserves put another impressive win in the books taking the first game with a 54-26 final over the Toronto Reserves.

The Tiger Varsity and Reserves are both now 2&1 on the young season. The Wellsville round ball players return to action at home on Tuesday evening, December 13, when they host ITCL rival Jackson Milton. The Reserves tip off at 6 PM.

Pictures above are from last Friday's game at Southern.

Go Tigers!
