Bulldogs at Hornets

Published 12:00 am Friday, October 22, 2004

The Sweet Water Bulldogs will be heading to Demopolis tonight to take on the John Essex Hornets after a heart breaking loss to the American Christian Patriots last week, 33-28.

The Hornets, meanwhile, host tonight’s affair after blowing out the Akron Rams last week for homecoming, 73-6.

This should be a great match up between two great teams.

As good as the Hornets have looked in all aspects of the game, I believe the visiting Bulldogs will have too much bite for John Essex to handle.

In last week’s action, the Bulldogs put up a fight to the finish against the highly touted Patriots and nearly walked away with an upset win.

Sweet Water can be very explosive on both sides of the field, so look for the Bulldogs to quickly take advantage of the Hornets mistakes.

Tonight’s “area game of the week” will feature two teams striving to prove they can handle the pressure that comes along with success.

Sweet Water will most likely walk away with the win, but don’t count out the Hornets of John Essex.

Especially when they are playing at home.

My prediction: Sweet Water 42, John Essex 21
