VARSITY FOOTBALL: Caldwell (5-1, 3-0) Friday night's much anticipated game between Navasota and Caldwell was everything Hornet fans were hoping for and then some. Not just a win, but a shut out. It was most definitely a get down and dirty game of old school, hit hard, and grind out the yards football. Let's all give a high five to Caldwell's defense which held the high-flying Navasota Rattlers to 114 yards of total offense and sacked quarterback Kye Hildreth eight times. Yes, if you were not there to see it, that is correct eight times. Linebacker LaDarion Jenkins keyed the Caldwell defensive effort. Penetrating into Navasota's backfield the entire game, sacking Hildreth 4 times. Jenkins also recovered a fumble in the fourth quarter to give his offense a chance to seal the victory. The Hornets' offense got 136 yards and two TD's from running back Kyson Woolverton for a 14-0 victory in a pivotal District 24-3A matchup. The Hornets gained 242 total yards rushing while the Hornet's stellar defense kept the ball away from the Rattlers (5-1, 1-1). Nelson Scott chipped in 81 yards on 15 carries, and D.J. Cumby had three rushes for 15 yards for the Hornets.
Friday night's win is only one of a very tough 24-3A District schedule for the Hornets. The Hornets will take this week to turn their focus to another top notch 3A team Rockdale and prepare for the Tiger's large, brutal defense. Caldwell high school football will be off this Thursday and Friday and will travel to Rockdale on October 23rd.
