Multiple Teams · Middle School Football—Blue Hornets Split with Monroe White


On Tuesday afternoon the Blue Hornets hit the home field to host Monroe White.  The Trojans defeated the 7th Grade Hornets, but the Saline 8th graders were victorious.

In a game where Monroe scored the first and last touchdowns, the Blue 8th Grade Hornets made sure to amp up their offense just enough in between those Trojan scores pull off a win.

Only 15 seconds into the first quarter, the Trojans scored a touchdown, but failed on the 2-point conversion. The score at the end of the first quarter was 6-0.  The Hornets outscored Monroe during the second quarter. With only 29 seconds left on the clock an extremely exciting pass play, with an outstanding end-zone catch, put the Hornets in the lead 16-12.

During the third quarter the Hornets continued to stretch the lead and as the seconds ticked away Saline was ahead 32-20.

Fourth quarter action included: A 99 yard touchdown run with a successful 2-point conversion for Monroe, a Saline touchdown on a quarterback keeper, and a final touchdown scored by the Trojans.  When all was said and done the Hornets came out on top 38-34.

The score by quarters for the 7th Grade Blue Hornets:

1st Quarter:   8-8

2nd Quarter:  8-16 (Monroe in the lead)

3rd Quarter:   8-16

4th Quarter:   8-24

The Gold Hornets travel to Tecumseh this afternoon to take on the Indians.  Good luck Hornets!!
