Coach LJ Harbison and the Hornets took to the field determined to rectify last week’s loss, against Adair.  In true Hornet fashion that’s exactly what they did and on Metcalfe’s Senior recognition night. The Hornets faced off with 8 and 0 Green County, for the regular season district championship. 207 rushing yards, 73 passing yards, 43 tackles, 4 sacks, and 4 touchdowns later, the Hornets end the Dragons perfect season, 28 – 26.

Devan Alderson led Metcalfe in rushing yards, with 84 then Mikey Bennett followed with 69 yards. Wyatt Blythe led in receiving yards with 67. Metcalfe will next travel to Louisville to take on 8 – 1 Kentucky County Day, next Friday night.
