"I'm very happy with the win today," Wellsboro coach John Shaffer said. "A great way to start the season. It was a great demonstration of our depth as we had two starters out today and everyone stepped up. On a difficult surface we were able to pass the ball pretty well. We need to improve our defensive organization in the midfield. We also need to finish teams off when we have the chance. We finally did that scoring four goals in five minutes in the second half."
