A week after lighting up the scoreboard in a rout of Bryan Rudder, the Hornets got pushed hard in the second half by a feisty bunch of Bulldogs. Huntsville responded like champs, driving the length of the field and scoring a backbreaking touchdown in a wild 29-15 victory over Magnolia.
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.
Unfortunately the Huntsville Hornets just couldn’t hold on in Conroe Friday night. The Montgomery Bears managed to hold the Hornets to only 66yds of offense, leaving the Hornets to fall against the Bears 28 – 3.
We’d like to congratulate the Hornets on their success this season, and we look forward to next season!
Hold the phone a minute, sports fans. Before making anymore Friday-night plans, here’s something you all need to know: The Hornets’ playoff football game against Montgomery is scheduled Friday at Buddy Moorhead Stadium in Conroe…
The Hornets slugged it out with Willis for one half Friday. But when the Wildkats finally landed a couple of potent uppercuts, then followed those with painful body blows, the Hornets crumbled in a 37-14 loss to their neighbors from the south in the regular-season finale at Bowers Stadium…
Trailing by three points at halftime, the Hornets said they felt pretty good. An hour or so later, they didn’t look so good.
After the Panthers of Kingwood Park ran off and left Huntsville 34-14, the Hornets were smarting a bit.
“We can’t lose our minds like we did tonight. We can’t lose control,” Huntsville defensive end Steve York said. “We’ve got to watch what we do out on the field and tonight we fell apart. We fell apart and started running our mouths.”
Coming off their biggest win in the last couple of years, the Hornets could have let up a little Friday. It would have been understandable had Huntsville limped through a homecoming game against a struggling and much smaller squad from New Caney.
Huntsville’s defense did not let up in the least. The Hornets dominated New Caney, holding the Eagles to 55 total yards of offense in a 23-0 Huntsville victory at Bowers Stadium…
It doesn’t get much simpler for the Hornets from this point forward.
Take care of business in the next three weeks and Huntsville will be headed back to the playoffs for a fourth straight fall.
Deadlocked in a five-way tie for first place in District 18-4A, the Hornets know that a couple of more wins will clinch another trip to the postseason….
What began as one of the Hornets’ most frustrating seasons may turn out to be one of Huntsville’s most rewarding campaigns ever.
The Hornets are in the hunt — the playoff hunt and the championship hunt. That’s remarkable considering the amount of adversity thrown in the Hornets’ path this season…
