Wellsville Tigers Are "Rollin On the River"

Saturday – January 7: The WHS Tigers improved their record to 5&4 on the season last night as they soundly defeated down river rival Toronto. Wellsville took a first quarter lead at 19-11 and never looked back. They built on that lead in each of the next three quarters to finish with a final score of 69-38.

Senior big man Josh Carter recorded a double-double on the night with 13 points and 17 rebounds. Sophomore Jordan Sloan had a game high of 17 points that included three treys from outside the arch. Another sophomore, Camden Douglas had 2 three-pointers for a total of 12 points. Nate Scott finished out the double digit scoring for the Orange & Black with another 12 points.

In the earlier Reserve game the Tigers trounced the visiting Red Knights 49-19.

Wellsville gets back to league play next Tuesday when the McDonald Blue Devils come visiting the Tiger's Den. Tip-off for the Junior Varsity is scheduled for 6 PM. It should be a very good game. McDonald has a new head coach and lost a slew of letter men to graduation last year. The Big Orange Run & Gun machine should be in high gear at 1 Bengal Drive come Tuesday night! The Lady Tigers get a chance first. They play McDonald Monday night at home.

Good Luck to both...
