The Hornets led Greenville 21-0 and appeared to be on their way to their fourth straight victory over the Trojans. Then, in a blink of an eye, a second half rally saw Andy Jones connect with Luke Houpt on a touchdown toss to tie the game at 21 and ultimately after the extra point give Greenville a 22-21 lead which they would not give away. Hickory’s 12-game home winning streak was snapped.
The Trojans had dropped four of their last six road games prior to tonight’s win.
The scoring opened with Andrew Pryts’ 28-yard touchdown catch. Once again, Hickory received a score from Matt Voytik from 16-yards away. To give the Hornets’ a 21-0 lead, Anthony Cannone intercepted a pass and return it 47-yards for six-points.
Trey Vanaken plunged in for Greenville’s first touchdown of the night.
Next week both schools will be home as Greenville (2-0) faces Saegertown and Hickory (1-1) hosts Wilmington.
