Call it momentum from last week’s solid win over Lighthouse Christian or call it a will to win but the Hornets will take the 26-15 win over the neighboring Chipley Tigers.
The game didn’t start as well as the Hornets would have liked with them trailing 15-14 at the start of the fourth quarter but it was a rally in the fourth that pulled out the Hornet win.
Eriq Hendricks had an NFL kind of night with 77 yards receiving, two touchdowns and a 78-yard pick six!
Issac Brincefield had quite a night with 175 yards on the ground and a touchdown.
Defensively, Tyrus Dudley was a beast with 15 tackles on the night.
Following the game, an elated coach Chris Obert summed it up in a few short words as only Obert can do, “God smiled on the Hornets”.
Cottondale will hit the practice field Monday to prepare for their next context against Graceville. They will host the cross-county Tigers with a 7:00 p.m. kickoff.
