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…
For a player listed as wide receiver on the roster sheet, SHSU sophomore Richard Sincere holds a bit more responsibility when he’s on the field.
Sometimes, the coaching staff might line Sincere up in the backfield where he’s most comfortable, often using his quarterback instincts to read opposing defensive schemes.
Other times, Sincere lines up at wide out, where he is still a work in progress. But the most dangerous part of his arsenal is something the coaches can’t teach – explosiveness…
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.”
It’s back to business as usual for the Bearkats.
After getting a little time to enjoy the big win over McNeese State last Saturday, Sam Houston now has its attention squarely fixed on Lamar today.
“Against McNeese, that was a real good game. We didn’t have a whole lot of good history against them going in,” Bearkats cornerback Bookie Sneed said following a chilly walk-through practice on Thursday.
In a place where Sam Houston has endured far more agony than jubilation over the years, the seventh-ranked Kats took it to McNeese State and walked out of “The Hole” with yet another dominant performance from start to finish.
Sam Houston, which had previously won only one once (1999) in Lake Charles, La. in 12 tries, beat up the Cowboys and never relented, cruising to a 38-14 blowout Saturday night…
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….
