East Central 21
Southwest 41

SAN ANTONIO -- The Hornets scored first in their game with the Southwest Dragons last Friday night, but then struggled throughout much of the night, as they eventually fell by the final score of 41-21.

East Central got things rolling early in the first quarter as quarterback Justin Upshaw-Mendoza connected with running back Johnathan Jackson for what turned into 55 yards and a touchdown. Dalton Zigmond then booted the extra point for East Central, and the Black and Gold enjoyed a 7-0 lead.

Unfortunately for East Central, the lead went away 17 seconds later as Southwest scored on a 37-yard passing play. The extra point for the Dragons tied things up at 7-all.

While things went back and forth throughout much of the remainder of the first quarter, Southwest scored its second touchdown of the game on a 15-yard run from scrimmage by Nathaniel Scott. The extra point made it a 14-7 game with less than a minute to play in the first.

Down but not out, the Hornets immediately got going on their next possession, taking just 52 seconds off the clock before scoring on a 43-yard passing play from Upshaw-Mendoza to Kyle Lamey. Zigmond added the point-after kick, and the teams were knotted up at 14-14.

The second quarter belonged to Scott and the Dragons, though, as Southwest added a pair of touchdowns. The first came on a 47-yard scamper early in the quarter, while the second came on a short 8-yard run from scrimmage with 1:31 to play in the half. As the teams headed for the locker rooms, it was Southwest with a 27-14 advantage.

Scott put the Hornets a bit further in the hole to start the second half, as the Dragons used just 15 seconds of the clock before Scott scored on a 63-yard run from scrimmage. Southwest added one final touchdown with 8:47 to play in the fourth quarter, and led the game 41-14.

East Central continued to fight, and the Hornets scored a third touchdown with 1:58 to play in the game. East Central drove down inside the red zone and Treyvon Hinson found the goal line after reeling in a 16-yard pass from Upshaw-Mendoza. Zigmond added the kick for the final point of the game.

Upshaw-Mendoza completed 10 of 16 passing attempts for 164 yards and three touchdowns. Dallas Polasek caught three passes for 19 yards, Wanya Ward and Hinson each caught two passes, and Jackson and Lamey each caught a pass for a touchdown. On the ground, Upshaw-Mendoza had 18 official carries for 58 yards. Jackson ran the ball 10 times for 30 yards, and Javion Polk ran seven times for another 18 paces.

The loss drops the Hornets to 3-4 on the season, and East Central is now 1-1 in district play. The Hornets will be back at home this Friday, Oct. 25, but will certainly have their hands full as they welcome the Cibolo Steele Knights. Steele is currently 6-1, and has gone unbeaten since dropping its opener in a 1-point loss to Madison.

Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. at Hornet Stadium.
