One play comes back to sting Hornets

FINDING THE GAP –– Senior Andrew Gunderson moves his feet on offense during an Aug. 25 home game. After a few plays, Gunderson took a hard hit to the head, sending him to get checked by the athletic trainer and earning him a spot on the sidelines for the rest of the match. Gunderson says it was hard to just sit and watch his team lose to Osseo-Fairchild, 28-21, but it was cool to see Cadott wear down their opponent and work together. (Photo by Kayla Peche)

After their first win of the 2017 season last week, the Cadott Hornets Football team came out ready for their home game Aug. 25, against Cloverbelt Conference opponent Osseo-Fairchild.

To start the night, senior Michael Emery connected with junior Donovan Walters for a 41-yard gain and touchdown in the first quarter, but senior Kolton Dupey’s extra-point kick was unsuccessful.

Walters says he saw Emery out of the pocket and under pressure, so he ran to that side of the field to help out.

“I just ended up finding hole in the defense,” said Walters. “I wasn’t looking for a touchdown, I just didn’t want our offense to suffer a loss of yards.”
