After having Friday’s game postponed and location changed (Inclement weather) the Hornets had a home opener versus the Central-Hayneville Lions. Bullock County entered a new era with Coach Sheldon Ward leading the way.
No better way to spend a Saturday afternoon then watching high school football with the weather just right and the field extra muddy.
It was a down out defensive gritty start. The Hornets were able to strike first with Sophomore tight end Trevon Palmer touchdown from a fumble recovery (Rush for 2-pt conversion was successful).
The Hornets extended the league with a 26-yard throw from Robert “Pooh Bear” Williams to Sophomore Jarquavious Smith (2-pt conversion run failed). Bullock County were up 14-0 by halftime.
The Hornets continued to show their dominance over the Lions. Their defense made it hard for their opponents to make plays down the field. The front seven made it difficult for the Lions quarterback to make a decision with the ball and the tailbacks kept getting pounded behind the line of scrimmage.
The only weakness against the home team is cramping up on the gridiron.
In the second half Williams made another score this time a 2-yard rush into the endzone (2-pt conversion run failed).
Late in competition the Lions went on to score a 15-yard rushing touchdown on their own (2-pt conversion run was successful). With the Hornets winning 20-8 Coach Ward earned his first win as B.C.’s head coach.
The Hornets will travel to Andalusia to battle Straughn Tigers. The game kickoff at 7:00 p.m.
