Aleah Johnson (1-for-4) also had an RBI, as Lilly Schoonover (1-for-3) scored a run. Addie Fulmer scored twice, with Kynlee Kunkle and TaeLynn Brabant also crossing home.
Shaylee Greenland went the distance in the win, striking out 10 with five hits, no walks, and three runs, two of which were earned.
Towanda’s bottom second rally began with a 1-out walk to Kunkle, followed by Schoonover hitting a single. Fulmer then walked to load the bases, setting up Kunkle scoring on an error off the bat of Bennett.
An error off the bat of Brabant then scored Schoonover, with Fulmer following her home for a 3-0 lead.
Johnson then singled in Brabant to put Towanda up 4-0.
Wellsboro used a double to score two runs in the fifth, but in the sixth Towanda struck back as a 2-out Overpeck single brought in Fulmer to make it 5-2.
