In an almost complete blow out of a football game, the Hackett Hornets dominated the Rose Bud Ramblers in a 44-8 in your face non-conference match. The Hornets now sit 4-2 on the season with plans on keeping the first column moving upwards. Hackett held Rose Bud to zero scores until the fourth quarter when the Ramblers earned their only points of the night.
The Hornet defense kept the Ramblers offense shut down with every breath they took. Fischer Shipman was a force to be reckoned with earning seven solo tackles, three assists, two tackles for a loss, and one fumble recovery. Weston Winters followed suit in the bulldozer department also achieving seven solo tackles, five assisted tackles, and one fumble recovery. Peyton Hester and Jesse Esparaza each accumulated five solo tackles with Hester also earning two assists and one tackle for a loss and Esparaza gaining one assist, one sack, and one fumble recovery. Dylan Kats was quick on his feet with one solo tackle and one interception. And Ethan “Superman” Slavens was faster than lightning with one assisted tackle and one interception.
The Hornets offense was no match for Rose Bud’s defense as the Ramblers just couldn’t find a way to keep Hackett from scoring allowing touchdown after touchdown. Avery Hester completed seven passes for 207 yards, three touchdowns, and two rushes for 40-yards. “Superman” Slavens completed two for two passes for a total of 46-yards and one TD. Kats was on fire with three receptions for 54-yards. Peyton Hester was uncatchable with three receptions totaling 126-yards and two touchdowns. Cogan Hester earned 37-yards with two receptions and secured one TD. Shipman slammed out one reception for a TD. And Winters was the man of the hour with 17 carries for 83-yards and two Hornet touchdowns.
Hackett will hit the road for their next conference game on Friday, October 18 against the 1-1 Hector Wildcats. The battle will start at 7 p.m.
