WELLSVILLE, OH- In a regular-season EOAC finale, the Wellsville Tigers were able to flex their muscles collectively over their league rival, East Palestine, 89-56.

The Tigers had a spread attack with Luke Green leading the way with 29 points, which also stacked as the game-high for either team.  Not far behind was Darien Suggs with 28 tallies, and Jaxson Brewer with 17.

For East Palestine, Zion Figley was the leading scorer with a dozen.  Brandon Turcola chipped in 11, and the all-time single-season leading scorer in East Palestine history, Jonathan Bertovich had 10.

Next up for both teams is the OHSAA Tournament on Tuesday.  Wellsville will take on future EOAC member Valley Christian, while East Palestine will battle Cardinal Mooney.
