In their first conference game of the season, the Magazine Rattlers delivered a huge upset to the Hackett Hornets in their own territory. The Sr High Rattlers marched onto the field ready to strike at any opponent that came their way. After falling short by one point to Cutter-Morning Star in last weeks game, Magazine was fighting mad and determined to take this win. After the dust had settled, the Rattlers walked away beaming with a 44-14 victory.
Tatum Scott was first to set the field on fire with a 55-yard hotfoot scramble downfield for a touchdown. The Rattlers had now set the tone of the game paving the way for more TD madness. Caleb Hyatt dominated next with a 15-yard run for a touchdown and the board lit up to read 16-0 Magazine. Scott put up one more touchdown with a 27-yard run and the game was sent to halftime 22-8 Rattlers.
The second half of the game showed the same intensity from Magazine as Scott would throw down two more touchdowns for the books within minutes of the start of the third quarter. With the score showing 38-8 Rattlers, Magazine just wasn’t happy with those numbers yet. Kaedon Trejo got Rattler fans on their feet with a massive 60-yard run in which Hyatt then came in to deliver one more Magazine touchdown allowing the Rattlers to close down shop with 44 points on the game.
With their impressive win, Magazine looks to keep the momentum going after this weeks bye week. The Rattlers will hit the road to take on the Hector Wildcats on October 11 at 7 p.m.
