The Hornets used a 16-point fourth quarter, fueled by a fumble recovery, to put the Oilers away. AHS led 12-6 heading into the fourth quarter. “I think it came down to conditioning,” said AHS head coach Robin Morris. “Both teams had cramping issues, but I think our guys responded better in the fourth quarter.”

Morris praised senior running back Christian Baca for his play against the Richmond. “He was really hard at tackling and had good open field vision when running the ball.”

Morris also credited the crowd for giving his players a boost. “The momentum got us going. We were able to feel the energy from the crowd in the fourth quarter,” said Morris.
