After the first win of the season against Dadeville the Hornets faced a powerhouse team the Patriots of Pike Road High School.
Last year Bullock County gave Pike Road a challenge as the game went down the wire losing by three points (31-28). The Hornets will have to play the rest of the season without Senior running back Jederrious Flintroy (Ankle).
The first quarter started off like we were getting ready to repeat the alright battle from last year. The Hornets’ and Patriots’ defense were both setting a tone between the lines.
With less then eight minutes to go in the second quarter Pike Road’s offense began to take off. The Patriots broke out their passing attack which outplayed the Hornets’ secondary.
The Patriots’ receivers were finding themselves open down the field to make it easy for their quarterback to hit them on the money. Within a few moments Bullock County were trailing big at halftime with 17-3 on the scoreboard.
In the second half the Patriots’ kept dominating on both sides of the field. Bullock County had some sparks with the running game but could not capitalize it in the end zone.
With the success of the air attack made it simple for Pike Road to gain a successful rushing attack.
The Patriots’ quarterback was a duel threat making huge plays with his arm and legs.
With great ball movement and stifling defense the Patriots were exhibiting their dominance over Bullock County 38-3 as the final score.
The Hornets will have the “Battle of Highway 29” next week against rival Booker T. Washington at Tuskegee.
