Hornets end Warriors' win streak

Submitted by Suzanne McFatter

Last Friday night’s boys’ basketball game at Grand Lake High School was an exciting and even historical one that this Cameron Parish school can be very proud of. The Grand Lake Hornets defeated the Hamilton Christian Academy Warriors bringing an end to a District winning streak of 54 games for the Warriors. The Hornets won on this night by a score of 48-26.

The Hornets have faced the Warriors many times through the years and each time it has seemed to be against all odds.

On this night, the Hornets played to defeat those odds and executed their plan perfectly. Their strong will to fight and win ignited the large crowd of supporters of both teams that filled the Hornet gym to near capacity.

More than just the final winning-streak-ending score this game was filled with stats that are record book worthy.

The Hornets led throughout the game, holding the Warriors to only one point in the first quarter. In fact, the Warriors first field goal didn’t come until over three minutes into the second quarter. To be able to hold the HCA team from scoring for that long is certainly noteworthy.

The Hornets kept the Warriors to their lowest scoring game on record since 2015, and that game was Hamilton’s game against a multi-champion 5A team well known for their abilities on the basketball court, Scotlandville High School.

The Warriors are well known for their ability to shoot from the perimeter. On this night, however, they were unable to successfully make any of their 17 attempted 3-point shots, as the Hornets worked to shut down the Warriors famous edge.

Drew Young led the Hornets with 17 points, followed by Adam McFatter with 12, and Kael Delcambre with 10. The Warrior’s Michael Thomas was their leading scorer with 7.

All of this gives the Hornets the top spot in District 4-1A as district play begins and puts them well seated in the top 10 of 1A schools in the state.
