Hornets sting Eagles with win

Published 12:00 am Monday, September 19, 2005

A.L. Johnson fans left the John Essex stadium unhappy, yet again, Friday night after losing to the Hornets 14-6.

Either both teams had terrific defense or terrible offense, because the score was 0-0 at the half.

Although the Eagles scored the first touchdown with minutes left in the third quarter to make the score 6-0, the Hornets decided to pull together to win the game.

Hornets’ coach, Al Shipman, said his team played bad in the first half and made “stupid mistakes.”

But the Hornets decided to spring into action in the fourth quarter where they scored two touchdowns and had a successful attempt at a two-point conversion.

“They came together in the second quarter and started believing in each other,” Shipman said.

After losing his second game of the season, Eagles’ Coach Mose Jones only had three words to say.

“We got beat.”
