WELLSVILLE, Ohio (WKBN) – A penalty on a touchdown, a failed fourth down conversion in the red zone and a late interception was too much for Wellsville to overcome Thursday night in a 34-8 loss to rival Toronto.

Kasen Ramsey scored the lone touchdown for the Tigers in the loss.

Wellsville will visit Edison in week two.

Toronto jumped on the board immediately by returning the opening kickoff for a touchdown to take a quick 6-0 lead.

The Tigers put the ball in the end zone later in the quarter, but a flag reversed the play and they were unable to score on the drive.

Trailing 20-0 in the fourth quarter, the Tigers got on the board with a Ramsey two-yard touchdown run to close the gap to 20-6.

A turnover gave the Tigers prime field position, but a fourth down conversion failed by a matter of inches inside the Red Knights’ five-yard line, keeping the Tigers off the scoreboard.

On the first play of the ensuing drive, a bad snap led to the ball going out of the endzone and a safety to close the gap to 20-8, giving Wellsville another opportunity.

The Tigers pushed the ball down the field on the ensuing drive, but an errant pass was picked off by a Toronto defender. Toronto used the good field position from the return to extend their lead to 28-8.

The Red Knights would then go on to push in one more score in the final seconds of the game.
