After a devastating 38-35 loss to Veterans Memorial, the Hornets came back to beat King 38-6 for a homecoming win on Oct. 13.

“After that loss, we had a lot of blood in our water, and we were ready to go,” center John Jensen said. “We used that as a motivator for this game and played really hard.”

Running back Simeon Wells rushed for 225 yards, more than the Mustangs rushed for the entire night.

Flour Bluff’s rushing yards more than doubled King’s, 413 to 205.

Fabian Pallares kicked a 35-yard field goal in the second quarter. Quarterback Braden Sherron, tight end/wide receiver Brendan Suckley and running backs Devin Burlingame, Simeon Wells and Gabriel Suarez all scored touchdowns.

Many of the coaches and players agreed that the defense played very well. They have greatly improved since last season and were able to keep King to 232 total yards. In contrast, the Hornets compiled 478 yards.

Henry Hoffman and Kadon Luke led the defense with five solo tackles each.

“(The defense was) extremely aggressive. They played sound technique, and they flew to the football,” defensive coordinator Clynt Elwood said.
