Hornets “D” stifles Gladwin in 42-14 shellacking

A tough game versus Clare last week left the Harrison Hornets searching for answers. After a loss to the Pioneers at home 42-14 Harrison wanted nothing more to bounce back while traveling to Gladwin. And they did.

44 straight points and blanking the Flying G’s was the ultimate response for the Hornets after suffering only their second loss of the season. Holding Gladwin to just 43 rushing yards and 6 passing yards. That comes directly from the two defensive ends Riley Bennett and Zach Taylor who both had huge games for the Hornets D.

The Harrison football team runs onto the field before the start of a home game earlier this season.

“A shutout against any team is impressive and following a week where we let up 42 it was huge our defense really stepped up to the plate this week and knocked it out of the park,” head coach Jamie Lipovsky said.

The team started out quick taking the opening drive down the field and scoring on the first possession. It was clear the Hornets had revenge on their minds and unfortunately for Gladwin they were the next on the Schedule.

Now for the Hornets (4-2, overall, 3-1 JPC) they look to build on this game and push for the playoffs. They are two wins away from securing their spot in the postseason but they play three strong teams with two also in playoff contention. Houghton Lake (Oct. 6), Beaverton (Oct. 13) , and Meridian (Oct. 20) are all strong opponents and the Hornets know that but they believe they’re a strong team too and need to look to end their regular season strong and gear towards a state playoff run.
