Not a Fun Labor Day Weekend for Hornets Sports

I hope everyone had a wonderful labor day weekend spending time with family & friends playing games, watching TV, hanging out, having good conversations, and throwing the best bar-b-que's ever.

Unfortunately, the Hornets football, soccer, and volleyball teams went through a very tough labor day weekend that ended in defeats.

Let's start off with the Lady Hornets soccer team.  They were trying to get their first win of season and just like last year, the lady hornets couldn't get a lot of offensive help as they lost two road games to Binghamton 1-0 on September 3 and Cornell 6-0 on September 5. Whats more bad news is that not only did the lady hornets lose their first four games of the season, but they where shutout for three straight games. Ouch.

The Lady Hornets volleyball team had a one day stay at the Buffalo Invitational losing a tough match to Central Connecticut State 3-2 and Buffalo 3-0. During the lady hornets lost to Central Connecticut State, the lady hornets had chances to put the lady Devils away but Central Connecticut State rallied and won the the last two matches to secure the win. The host Buffalo took the lady hornets to the limit and couldn't let DSU get any wins in three straight matches.

Now on the Hornets football team. Everyone was hyped to see the Hornets football team return to their winning ways. Instead they blew a 11 point lead in the second half as Southern University took advantage of the Hornets fatigue and beat DSU in the MEAC/SWAC Challenge 37-27. The two highlights of the game belong to Larrone Morre and Andre Carrol. Larrone was great on offense and special teams posting 186 all purpose yards and two touchdowns. He scored a 90 yard touchdown return and a 86 yard kickoff return for a touchdown. Plus Andre Carrol made a career high of 13 tackles for the Hornets defense that stayed out on the field for a long period of time. I will have more on the MEAC/SWAC game between Delaware State and Southern on my next blog.

Now that the long tough Labor Day weekend is over let see if the Hornets fall sports can get back on the winning track throughout the rest of September.
