Cottondale Hornets win in dramatic comeback fashion

The Cottondale Hornets proved what a tough team they were Friday night when they battled back to pick up their second win of the season to move to 2-0.  They traveled to take on the Jay Royals and left the field with everyone well aware that it wasn’t over till it was over.  

Jay scored first in the game, going up 7-0 in the first quarter.  The Royals quickly made it a 21-0 game before Cottondale scored on a Dominique Pittman run with Jimmy Price adding the two-point conversion.  The lead was narrowed to 21-8 but the Hornets battled to make it a 27-14 lead at the half with Cameron Brooks scoring the touchdown and reliable Jimmy Price in for the conversion.  

Cottondale took the field in the second half with a determined look and their level of play showed on the field.  They battled to make it a 27-22 game with 9:16 left in the fourth quarter.  Amari Banks accounted for the touchdown with Cameron Brooks in for the two points.  

The final and definitive score came with just 1:57 left in the game when Amari Banks found the endzone to make it a 28-27 game.  The Cottondale defense did their job and the Hornets had a 2-0 start to the season.  

Following the game, coach Tyler Addison said in response to fan allegations of bad balls, “We had to overcome ourselves.  We did not play well tonight, did not coach well tonight.”  Addison is a true coach who calls it like it is and takes full responsibility for losses and gives his team credit for wins.  Kudos to Cottondale on having such an outstanding coach.

Cottondale will travel to Bristol tomorrow night to take on the Liberty County Bulldogs.  Liberty County enters the game 0-2 with a 40-0 loss to Bozeman in game one before falling 42-8 to Florida A&M last Friday night.  Cottondale will be hitting the practice field this week in hopes of a 3-0 start to the 2017 season.
