Hornets slip against Madison Prep, 70-60

After taking care of business at home against district rival Vidalia 81-42, the Hornets traveled to Baton Rouge to take on triple A power Madison Prep.

 The Chargers were ready for the Hornets who had defeated them a week earlier in Rayville, 57-48, before a home crowd in excess of a thousand. Mylik Wilson was designated MVP in that game by Down South Magazine.

Even though the Hornets led by one at 35-34 at the half, they trailed by three at the end of three and went on to lose 70-60. No doubt the difference was the thousand vociferous fans in Hornet Gym.

Hornets still on top despite tough opposition

This year’s edition of the Rayville High School Hornets is for real.

Good as last year? Maybe so, maybe not. Record doesn’t indicate it, but it could be the opposition is stronger. They have met two of the strongest in the state and split.

First was Scotlandville at the show down in Grambling. Then Madison Prep out of Baton Rouge as well. 

Scotlandville, also the Hornets, were as much like the Rayville Hornets that we have met, three poppers and shot blockers. They didn’t beat us, we just ran out of time 74-76.
