The Hamilton Hornets took to their gridiron

Friday, Aug. 28, and drove the Albany Warriors

down the field for eleven touchdowns. The

Warriors failed to muster a scoring series,

leaving the Hornets victorious in the 73-0


The Hornets' first six touchdowns were

conventional rushing and passing plays. In the

first series of the game, Trevor Dixon, who

amassed 93 total rushing yards on six carries

during the game, moved the ball 48 yards.

Quarterback Keagan Prather contributed ten

yards to help Dixon cross the goal line. Albany

punted and Dylan Chadwick returned the ball

58 yards for another touchdown. With 7:49

remaining in the first quarter, the Hornets were

up 14-0. Prather slipped around the left end of

the Warriors on a quarterback keeper for the

final touchdown of 1st quarter.

a 30-yard touchdown run. Chadwick kicked

each extra point kick which left the score 28-
