Hornet Offense Puts On A Show In 49-38 Homecoming Victory
The Hornet offense picked right up from where they ended last week, putting together another impressive outing in a 49-38 victory over the Woodstock Wolverines on Homecoming night at the Hornets Nest. Falling behind early 7-0, the offense methodically took control of the game and used a variety of weapons to take the lead back in the first quarter, and from there they never looked back. Sheldon Evans turned in another stellar performance, recording 4 touchdowns for the second game in a row. The Wolverine defense had no answer for Evans and the strong blocking of the Roswell offensive line, as he ran for TD’s of 42, 28, and 3 yards, and added another 41 yard TD on a pass completion from James Whitaker. Whitaker also added to the offensive fireworks with a 1 yard run for a touchdown, an 18 yard TD pass to Mechane Slade and 8 yard strike to Jayden Comma to cap the final scoring for Roswell in the 4th period.
With the victory, the Hornets move to 5-2 overall, and 4-1 in Region 5-6A. Next up for the Hornets are the Cherokee Warriors at the Hornets Nest on 10/24.
This is a critical region game that has playoff implications for both teams, and is also Hero night at the stadium where RHS will be honoring members of the Roswell community who have served in our military, police, fire, and EMT. Come on out and support our Hornets and Heroes in what promises to be an exciting night of 6A Georgia football!
