Hornets look to take out first-loss anger on Owls

Hornets look to take out first-loss anger on Owls

September 27th, 2013 in News

Fulton Hornets head football coach Pat Kelley was pretty blunt about the mood of his team following last week's 43-7 thumping at the hands of the state-ranked Moberly Spartans.

"Our locker room was not a good place to be Friday night after the game and I talked to them about, "Do you want that again?'" Kelley said Wednesday afternoon. "It's one game and it showed we still have some work to do.

"I asked them if on Aug. 12 (the start of fall practice) if I said we'd be 3-1 after four games, what would they have said, and I think everyone in the locker room would have taken that."

Putting that loss - the Hornets' first of the season - behind them begins tonight when Fulton hosts the Marshall Owls in a North Central Missouri Conference tilt at Robert E. Fisher Jr. Stadium. Kickoff is at 7.
