On September 25, 2020, the Bullock County Hornets battled the Abbeville Yellowjackets.
In the first half, it was a back and forth game between both defenses. Both teams had trouble gaining yards and putting points on the board.
It started as a real clash on the gridiron between both squads. In due time, the Yellowjackets’ offense began to have momentum and pour it on the Hornets’ defense. Abbeville’s run option plays were too much for the Hornets to handle.
Bullock County could not fill the gap to make plays on the opposing team’s tailbacks nor quarterback. The Yellowjackets had a commanding 14-0 lead at the half. In the second half, Abbeville continued to run down the middle against the Hornets’ defensive line. The Hornets also had trouble on offense.
They were not able to outrun the Yellowjackets’ front defensive seven, and the receivers could not separate from the secondary. Penalties were also costly against Bullock County.
Every big play made by the Hornets ended up with yellow flags on the field. The Hornets could not capitalize off the big win against Booker T. Washington (Tuskegee). Abbeville added three more rushing touchdowns, giving them a 32-0 shutout.
On Friday, October 2, the Hornets will have their home game against the Dale County Warriors. Kickoff is at 7:00 p.m.
