Loyd Star (2-2), led by second-year head coach Adam Cook, battled a very tough Franklin County team last week, falling to the Bulldogs 34-0 at William E. “Sambo” Smith Field.

This week, the Hornets are preparing for a tough road test as they visit Forest to battle the Scott Central Rebels.

Tomez Holifield powered the Rebels’ rushing attack last week with 14 carries for 177 yards. TJ Wash led the passing attack, completing 7-of-10 passes for 92 yards.

Darrion Goss directed the Rebels’ defense with 11 tackles.

Loyd Star’s top offensive performer last week against Franklin County was junior quarterback Parker Flowers. He completed 5-of-17 passes for 46 yards and rushed 64 yards on 14 carries.

Lakein Wallace was the top receiver with three catches for 26 yards and Michael Harvey caught a pass for 15 yards.

Defensively, Flowers paced the Hornets with 11 tackles. Lakin Wallace contributed six stops and had a fumble recovery. Nicholas Smith also had six tackles.

My prediction: This should be a evenly matched contest, but home field advantage will help the Rebels to a 28-14 win.
