Miscues, bad snaps, penalties and turnovers have plagued the Hardin Hornets (2-4, 0-3) over the past couple of weeks, and now they find themselves in a bind if they are going to have any chance at reaching postseason play in 2020. They are coming off their fourth consecutive loss this season, losing 26-0 to the Buna Cougars (3-2, 3-0). This makes the third loss in District 10-3A, Division I competition this year.

The Liberty Panthers moved to 3 and 3 on the year last Friday night with a hard-fought 14-6 loss to the Orangefield Bobcats. This loss has Liberty’s record at 0-3 in District 11-4A play. It was a very even matchup that gave the Bobcat boys the win on essentially two plays in the game; a long kickoff return and an intercepted Liberty pass.
