Osage Beach Five minutes in and it looked like the Fulton Hornets football team was all ready out of it.
Before the Hornets could run their second offensive play from scrimmage, the School of the Osage Indians had jumped out to a 22-0 lead and seemed to be on their way to a third straight season-opening dismantling of Fulton.
The Hornets’ 50-14 loss to the Indians on Friday night says that’s what happened. In fact, Osage’s 516 yards of total offense paints the picture of a rout by the Indians.
“I don’t think the score is indicative of how we played from an effort standpoint,” Fulton head coach Pat Kelley said. “But it’s an ugly score and we have to take blame for that because we gave up too many easy ones.”
