“It was good!” Silvas said, “It was great to bounce back.”

Silvas was upset on how the game went and is hoping to change this week.

“We know how we can play and we didn’t play hard,” Silvas said. “We got better as a team when we lost it humbled us. Let me tell you now we have something to prove.”

Csintyan may have been the team receiving leader but he knows it was a whole team effort.

“As a team we work really hard and if ten other guys on that offense don’t do their job that wouldn’t happen. So shout out to my teammates,” Csintyan said

The Hornets look to keep the momentum rolling Friday, Oct. 9 against Linden with hopes to better their record with eyes on the MHSAA State Championship title.
