Hornet drop big game to Bears

OROVILLE – Perhaps the Hornets had gotten too complacent easily defeating all comers, when they met the Brewster Bears it was a much different story.

The Brewster Bears, the only other team in the NCW B League took Oroville to school besting them 24 to 12. The Hornet’s first league loss was compounded by the fact that took place on Oroville’s home field in their Homecoming game.

“Fumbles and penalties played a big part in the 24-12 loss to Brewster. Our game plan offensively was do to do want we’ve done all year, run at them, but continued to shoot ourselves in the foot with fumbles or penalties every time we got something going,” said Head Coach Tam Hutchinson after the game.
