    Where, oh where did the Huntsville offense go? Honestly, every time the Hornets played a big game this season, their offense vanished.

    On Friday night, in arguably their most important game of the 2011 campaign, the Hornets’ “O” pulled its most confounding disappearing act.

    Two first downs. That’s all Huntsville managed in a 28-3 loss to the Montgomery Bears in a Class 4A Division I bi-district playoff game at Moorhead Stadium.
