The Hornets closed out their non-district schedule in style with a 17-12 win over 6A C E King. The Hornets put pressure of the Panthers early jumping out to a 10-0 half time lead. C E King was averaging 36 points per game and over 300 yards rushing but could not get anything going against the Hornet Defense. The Hornets put another touchdown on the board late in the third quarter to make it 17-6. Some costly mistakes by the Hornets allowed the Panthers to close to 17-12 with less than two minutes to go. The Hornet Defense stepped up again defending their goal line three straight times. The last two inside the one yard line. Great win for the program as we get ready for district play next week.
