    Hornets Looking For Answers

    The Hornets had one of those weeks everyone would like to forget. On Friday, things went from bad to worse during a lopsided 50-13 loss to Livingston at Lion Stadium. Huntsville (0-3) let its final nondistrict game get out of hand quickly during the second quarter. The Lions (3-0) scored 34 points in that period.
