Hornets improve to 6-1. Friday night did not start out the way Hornet fans anticipated. The week preparing for Bonney Lake the weather did not always cooperate. On Tuesday a huge rain storm came rolling into Enumclaw causing I guess you would describe as flash floods on the streets.
We were anticipating rain for Friday nights contest but were not expecting the inch of rain in 1 hour like we got. The rain really started to fall about 20 minutes prior kick off and by the opening kick off it had turned Pete’s Field in a huge mud pit.
The Hornets kicked off and watched BL return the opening kick off for 6 points. Everything that could go wrong in the first quarter it seemed to for the Hornets as they quickly fell behind 20 to 0. The Hornets kept their composure and rallied back to score 33 unanswered.
The Hornet offense produced close to 500 total yards and the Hornet Defense really put the clamps down on the Panthers from Bonney Lake. The Panther offense had roughly 75 passing yards and 85 rushing. The Defense forced 3 turnovers. My brother Andrew had a successful night as he rushed for over 165 yards on 26 carries.
The win set up an exciting match up this coming week as the Hornets take on Peninsula for a battle of 2nd place and home field advantage week 1 into the state playoffs.
