The Hackett Hornets have proven their town supports them with great tradition, and pride, but the team itself play with goals, and passion under their coaching staff.
Last Friday night, the Pocola Indians rolled into town with an opportunity to swat the Hornets. That didn’t happen. In fact, it wasn’t even close.
The strength in unity of the Hackett Hornets started in the 1st Quarter, and never let up. A “powerhouse” mentality sent the Indians packing with a final score of 40-0, giving Hackett the victory and strong momentum.
“We came out a little slow in our first Defensive series (bent but didn’t break). But after that, we played like we know we are capable of playing. We played well as a team, and hope that gives us momentum going into this week’s tough conference game against Mountainburg on their field.” – Hackett Head Coach, Lonnie Hester
