Junior Hornets team rallies for come-from-behind win

With the crowd rallying behind them, the seventh-grade Junior Hornets picked up a come-from-behind 51-50 win over the Raptors Saturday.

Trailing 32-13 at the half, the Hornets came alive in the second half. The offensive line of Jacob Manke, Ryan Lusk, Eric Knutson, Aiden Michaelson and Aaden Amburgey blew open holes allowing Zak Carroll to score multiple touchdowns. Taylor Beaird also scored a TD.

In the fourth quarter, down 50-45 with 1 minute, 26 seconds left on the clock, the Hornets’ Kidder McKee and Jakob Treece drove the team down the field. McKee threw a buzzer-beating touchdown pass to Jacob Revell for the win.

The day wasn’t as great for the Hornets’ other teams.

Despite touchdowns from Tommy Baxter and Jackson McCann, the fourth-grade team lost 13-12.

The fifth-grade team lost 12-6.

The sixth-graders lost 22-20 with Ross Olson, Bear Kuro and Mason Fend scoring.

The Hornets’ eighth-grade team lost a 28-6 contest to the Gig Harbor Tides with Tyler Harris scoring the lone touchdown.
