Little League Hornets Make Winning Look Easy


By Megan Hecox

Hackett Little League Football showed their home crowd that they are for real after dominating performances against the Western Yell Wolverines Saturday night. The future of the Hornet football program was looking so bright, that fans might have to start wearing their sunglasses at night.

The 3rd and 4th Grade Hornets cruised past the Wolverines 38-0 in the night’s first game. The well rounded Hackett team opened up the playbook on Western Yell offensively and seemed to score at will. The Hornet Defense held strong by pitching its second shutout of the conference season. The Hornets 3rd and 4th Grade Coach, Nick Holbert, said “We came out and played well on both sides of the ball. I feel like this was the first time we came out and played all four quarters to our potential. Western Yell never gave up though and they fought us hard. Now it’s time to prepare to face Mansfield on their home turf for their Homecoming in this Saturdays Rivalry Game. Go Hornets.”

After a close 8-0 victory over Magazine last week Hackett’s 5th and 6th Grade squad wanted to prove that they are worthy of the hype surrounding them by Western Yell 44-6 in an offensive showcase. The Hackett offense looked like Marines sending scores by air, land, and if there was a sea, they would’ve tried to score there too. The Hornet defense stung the Wolverines in the backfield multiple times giving the Hornet offense good field position all game.

The Hackett Little League Hornets will travel to Mansfield to face the Tigers on Saturday, October 6. The 3rd and 4th-grade game will start at 6:00 pm and the 5th and 6th-grade game will start at 7:00 pm.
