Struggling Hornets tamed by Tigers to close regular season

The Fulton Hornets are still alive.

Head coach Pat Kelley takes solace in that fact. Even after losing his starting quarterback, even after dropping a fourth straight game to close out the regular season, Fulton has reached the point of the season where none of that seemingly matters.

The Hornets — winners of four of their first five — dropped their fourth game in the last five tries in a 34-24 North Central Missouri Conference loss to the Kirksville Tigers on Friday night at Robert E. Fisher Jr. Stadium.

As a result, Fulton fell to the fifth spot in the Class 3, District 6 standings and will have to travel to Chillicothe on Thursday night to open district play. Chillicothe (4-5) moved into fourth place after topping St. Joseph Benton 35-20 on Friday night.
