The Kirksville Tigers left Fulton Hornets head football coach Pat Kelley befuddled.
Fresh off another 40-plus point loss, Kelley could only say that he didn’t know what to say and that the defeat frustrated him. Four touchdowns in less than a quarter will do that, though.
The Hornets’ kickoff coverage was busted wide open on the game’s first boot and resulted in a 95-yard return for a touchdown by Kirksville sophomore running back Harrison Dollins.
It was a sign of things to come as the Tigers silenced the Fulton homecoming crowd with big play after big play in Kirksville’s 56-13 North Central Missouri Conference thumping of the Hornets on Friday night at Robert E. Fisher Stadium.
“I’m at a loss for words,” Kelley said after the game. “I’m frustrated all around and we just need to be better prepared for football games.”
