Cottondale Hornets sting Lighthouse Stingrays

The Cottondale Hornets are 3-0 to start the 2017 season under coach Tyler Addison and that’s given the Hornet fans something to shout about.  Friday night, their offense made a statement that they are the real deal as they hammered Lighthouse Academy of Pensacola 54-18.

In the Hornets’ first possession, Cameron Brooks led the way, capping off the drive down the field with a six-yard run into the end zone. Lighthouse answered quickly with a long pass play for a touchdown and made good on their two-point conversion to take the temporary lead 8-6.  

Cottondale’s Dominique Pittman lit up the crowd and the scoreboard up with an electrifying run into the end zone.  Pittman converted the two points and the Hornets were in the lead 14-8 with three minutes left in the first quarter.

Levi Davis picked up a fumble recovery at the end of the first quarter and with less than a minute off the clock in the second quarter, Jimmy Price was in the end zone.  Pittman converted on the two points and the Hornets were in control 22-8.  The Hornets had a Pittman touchdown called back but it did not dismay the Hornets drive to make it a 3-0 start to their season.  Jimmy Price was called on for the next touchdown with Pittman making good on the conversion.  The Hornets were cruising 32-6 with 5:47 left in the first half.  

Lighthouse capitalized on a fumble recovery for a touchdown to narrow the lead to 32-12.  The Hornets didn’t rest though with Cameron Brooks finding Dalvin Barnes and quickly it was 38-12 at the half.

In the third quarter, Brooks found Amari Banks on a 65-yard touchdown pass with the conversion right on the money.  The Hornets lead was 46-12.  Both teams managed another touchdown but it was decidedly a Hornet night with the 54-18 victory.  

Cottondale will be working hard in practice this week as they host the Chipley Tigers Friday night.  Coach Addison will have his team ready with the prospect of 4-0 looking them in the eye.
