Hornets sputter again, lose big to Spartans

Hornets sputter again, lose big to Spartans

September 26th, 2011 in News

The Fulton Hornets won the turnover battle and were the least-penalized team Friday night against the Moberly Spartans.

And yet, the Hornets lost by at least 40 points for the third time this season. Go figure.

"It's frustrating right now," Fulton head coach Pat Kelley said. "...But the bottom line is that Moberly wore us down up front.

"We couldn't keep up with them and hats off to them."

The Spartans' stable of running backs and multitude of offensive formations most certainly tuckered out Fulton. And it was the difference in the Moberly's 47-7 North Central Missouri Conference win over the Hornets at Robert E. Fisher Stadium.

Fulton (1-4, 1-3 NCMC), coming off a 10-8 NCMC win at Marshall last week, hoped to get some good momentum in front of a home crowd after back-to-back NCMC road games.
