Friday, the Hornets went down to Beulah to face a team who also wears black and gold, the Beulah Bobcats. Bullock County was looking for their second straight win (Booker T. Washington, Tuskegee) to even up the season record.
It began with a lot of errors from Bullock County’s offense in the first quarter. In the first period alone, the Hornets had four fumbles. Due to the turnovers the Hornets found themselves to be behind early 18-7 in the first quarter.
After the horrific start from the Hornets they began to turn the tables. Head Coach Willie Spears stated, “At practice we try to create adversity. We do things at practice to make it unfair, to make sure we’re behind, and make them run in the middle of practice. We just aggravate them. In practice we always say we find out who you are when adversity hits.”
The Hornets’ running game straight exploited and ruled the Bobcat’s defense with ease.
Quarterback Robert Williams, running backs Kentavious Owens and Jemarkis Foster were completely unstoppable finding easy access to the endzone. Not to be ignored the defense took advantage of Beulah’s mistakes on offense.
The Hornets conquered the Bobcats 48-18 at the end of regulation. Spears said, “Adversity hit, but our guys did not panic.”
The Hornets’ next game will be at home Friday, October 11th against the Prattville Christian Academy Panthers at 7:00 p.m.
