The Scotlandville Hornets had a home game tonight against the Denham Springs Yellowjackets. The crowd tonight was electric; the Scotlandville fans were electric throughout the game. It was a cold night up here and it did not stop anyone’s energy.
Denham started with the ball, but after one first down, they were forced to punt. Denham’s defense seemed ready for Scotlandville’s high powered offense and forced what seemed to be a three and out. Scotlandville lined up to punt but snapped it to the second line of blockers and he took it 70 yards for a touchdown. Scotlandville takes an early 7-0 lead. After a 3 and out Scotlandville takes over again. On the second play of the drive, they took a shot deep that landed them at the three yard-line. On the ensuing play, Scotlandville put the ball in the endzone making it a two-score game less than four minutes into the game.

While having good field position they had a long methodical drive, taking the first quarter clock to 2 minutes before scoring on a nine-yard touchdown pass. Scotlandville went for two and made the game 22-0. To end the first quarter on a positive note, Denham was able to put together a somewhat successful drive, they were able to get a few first downs and cross the 50-yard line.

This was the extent of Denham’s success, as they threw an interception on the next drive. Scotlandville was able to score one last time before the end of the half, going up 35-7.
After halftime, Scotlandville began to rotate their lineup and played their backups, as they were in cruise control.
