WELLSVILLE, OH- In front of a packed house on “Black Out Night,” the Wellsville Tigers newly renovated stadium and turf field started off in style with a 41-7 win over the visiting Edison Wildcats. The Tigers got things started quickly on the first drive of the night with quarterback Troy Carter going in for a one-yard score just 2:43 into the first quarter. The score was set up by a 30-yard pass from Carter to senior wide receiver standout Darien Suggs. The duo would hook up for three first-half scores. 

After taking a 14-0 lead in the second quarter, Edison responded with its own scoring drive – senior signal-caller Noah Woods capped off the drive with a run from inside the one-yard line. Woods suffered an injury in the second quarter and did not return. That one-yard score would be the only time Edison would find the end zone on the night. 

Carter finished the night with 173 yards and 3 passing touchdowns to go along with his one-yard touchdown run. The Jr. signal-caller also had an interception on defense. Suggs led all receivers with 5 catches for 135 yards and three touchdowns to go with two interceptions on defense. Freshman Isaiah Greathouse led the Tigers on the ground with six rushes for 48 yards. Jason Tice and Justin Wright also came up with interceptions on the night for the Tigers – Tice’s went 65 yards for the score. Tyler Griffith led the Wildcats in rushing with 19 carries for a hard-earned 103 yards. Vinnie Marcino chipped in seven runs for 24 yards. 

Wellsville had six takeaways and no turnovers on the night, and now have 10 forced turnovers on the year. With the win, Wellsville starts 2-0 for the first time since 2014. Edison falls to 0-2 and will host Toronto next Friday. Wellsville will host Malvern in a rematch of a game that came down to the wire in 2018.
