The 2020 Freshman season began with a tight game but a win over visiting Fr Lopez on Thursday at home.

The Hornets scored on their first possession drive with a 4 yard run and touchdown by Maddox D. after driving from mid field. A Lopez fumble on the ensuing kick off put the Hornets on the field for a failed drive and turn over on downs. Lopez threw an interception to Andrew N. giving the Hornets the ball back on their own 45.

A missed toss fumble recovery by Lopez put them back on the field and completed a 37 yard run the next play, only to be called back for a penalty. Hornets took over on downs, then tragedy struck. Starting wide receiver Diego E. in a half back pass reception came down the wrong way and experienced a season ending injury. The Hornets went on only to fail on a 4th down run sending Lopez to the field completing 2 successful passes and scoring just before the half leaving the halftime score: 7-6 Hornets .

In the second half Hornet defense stepped up determined to get the ball back to the offense and in the 4th quarter drove to the 6 yard line and attempted a field goal. It was successful but a penalty for running into the center, gave the Hornets the ball back on the five yard line and a first down.

The next play Quarterback Tyler D. ran a fullback keeper to the left and stretched out the defense scoring a touchdown. The extra point was blocked.

With 4:35 seconds on the clock the defense had a stellar 9 play stop and the clock ran out . “We managed the clock well and were not forced to punt” said Coach

Congratulations Hornets and a speedy recovery to Diego E..
