Wellsboro outshot Williamson 28-2 and took 17 corner kicks. Freshman keeper Lilly Abadi recorded 1 save in goal for earn the shutout.

"We knew coming in that they didn't have a lot, but weren't trying to run the score up," head coach Scott Burrous said. "We tried different girls to score and got different girls to score. It was fun. One of our goals is to prepare for districts and sometimes you can move people around when you ge the opportunities to see who can play these positions."

The win improves the Lady Hornets' record to 3-1 (3-1 NTL). The team will be back in action on Saturday, September 15 as they host Loyalsock.
