Cottondale celebrates homecoming with huge 44-8 win

The Cottondale Hornets were on a mission Friday night and when the final seconds ticked off the clock, it was MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!  They concluded a week of homecoming festivities with a solid 44-8 win over North Bay Haven.  This made the fourth win in a row for the Hornets who improve to 4-2 on the season. 

It was a team effort with their first score of the night coming on an Issac Brincefield run to the promise land. Dalvin Barnes made the two-point conversion look like taking candy from a baby and the Hornets had an 8-0 lead. 

North Bay Haven’s defense hardly had time to catch their breath before Jalen Redding made it into the endzone on a short run.  Just like moments earlier, Dalvin Barnes made good on his second two-point conversion and the Hornets had a 16-0 lead and never looked back. 

It appeared the Redding – Brincefield was the tag team to conquer with North Bay Haven not up to the task.  Both had another rushing touchdown on the night. Dalvin Barnes went to the air to find Brincefield for another touchdown making it a 36-0 shutout at halftime. 

The Hornets took the field following the break and picked up right where they left off, making sure they picked up a win on the seniors’ last homecoming game. Dalvin Barnes went to the air again finding Eriq Hendricks for a 33-yard pass for their final touchdown. Once again, it was Barnes on the two-point conversion making it a 44-0 game before the fourth quarter began. 

Bay Haven scored their only touchdown and conversion in the fourth quarter.

Cottondale will be back on the practice field Monday getting ready for a trip to Wewa to take on the Gators.  Wewa will enter the context with a 4-3 record and the Hornets will have their sights set to make it 4-4.
