Hornets sting the Liberty County Bulldogs for 20-16 win

The Cottondale Hornets were hungry for a win Friday night and they didn’t stop until that mission was accomplished.  They handed the visiting Liberty County Bulldogs a 20-16 loss before die-hard Hornet fans cheering from the bleachers. 

It was a dramatic come from behind win in the final three minutes when Caleb Nix threw a strike to Eriq Hendricks for a 96-yard touchdown pass on a fourth and an 11-play to move to a 20-16 win. 

The first half was a defensive battle with a field goal for Liberty County the only score in the half. 

Cottondale came out of the locker room after the half fired up and ready to take control.  Isaac Brincefield found the endzone with Nix making the conversion. It was Hornets 8-3 over the Bulldogs. 

The Bulldogs quickly had an answer to make it a 10-8 game, and added another touchdown pulling away to a 16-8 lead. Jalen Redding pulled the Hornets closer when he found the endzone, make it a 16-14 game.  

A Liberty County punt pinned Cottondale deep into their territory but Nix and Hendricks had an answer with a 96-yard pass play.  

Following the game, an elated first-year head coach Chris Obert was all smiles, “I’m just proud of the kids. They hung in there and kept fighting and found a way to pull it out. We had a couple of people step up and make some big plays and I was proud of them. They dug down and found a way to win and that was great.” 

Cottondale’s road doesn’t get any easier as they travel to Lighthouse Christian (Pensacola) Friday night. Lighthouse Christian defeated St. John Paul II 53-8 last Friday night but came into that game with an 0-2 record. They opened the season with a 46-20 loss to Northview before falling 24-0 to Wewahitchka.
