Hornets have ‘everything to gain’ against Pirates

When the Fulton Hornets football team reconvened on Labor Day for practices, it took an interesting approach when breaking down the game tape from last week’s loss to the Boonville Pirates.

There was obvious emphasis on what the Hornets did wrong in the 40-3 North Central Missouri Conference loss, but most of what was broken down was what Boonville did well.

“It’s probably the first time in a long time we’ve done a film session where we spent a lot of time on the opponent,” Fulton head coach Pat Kelley said during Wednesday’s practice. “... We showed the kids how they (Boonville) got after it on defense, played their assignments and made good tackles.

“We told them all that stuff (the Hornets’ mistakes) were coachable. Ninety-five percent of those things can be corrected.”

Fulton (0-2, 0-1 NCMC) started early in preparation for tonight’s conference contest at the Hannibal Pirates (kickoff at 7).
