Clay-Battelle scored early and often as the Hundred Hornets shot themselves in the foot - with a pair of Cee-Bee touchdown punt returns and interceptions - in a 48-8 loss to the Clay-Battelle Cee-Bees. The football action occurred Friday, Aug. 25 in Blacksville.

Hundred was its own worst enemy as the Cee-Bees raced out to a 34-0 lead by the break, and 48-0 lead heading - before crossing the goal line off a Cee-Bee miscue.

Martin Baker picked off a Clay-Battelle pass and raced back 27-yards to set up a Morris two-yard touchdown scamper and an Andrew Zedell two-point conversion run for Hundred's only points in the game.

However, besides the turnovers, the Hornets moved the ball effectively before coughing up the pigskin and interceptions. Their opening drive in the first quarter was a six-minute drive that covered three-fourths of the field before losing the ball to a turnover.

Hundred also only committed three penalties in the game, on a pair of delay of game miscues and a false start,.

Besides the four interceptions, White accumulated 42-yards on nine carries, while Zedell netted 15-yards, and Morris managed to pick-up three yards after four QB sacks. Miller did hook up with Zedell three times for 73-yards, while Martin Baker, Skylar Goff and Robert Hostutler each grabbed one pass for 32-yards combined.

Baker made an interception, while Zedell recovered a fumble.

"I'm very proud of my players; they moved the ball on offense and made some nice defensive plays. We didn't get anybody injured and we each learned a few things that I hope will get us moving in the right direction and build off of," said Head Coach Shayne Minor. "We have a bunch of players that have never played football before and did a good job for us tonight. Norris did a good job behind center and White punished his defenders blocking and running the ball."

"I would also like to thank the Clay-Battelle family for all the encouragement and hospitality they have shown us throughout this process when we lost our football field for the season because of the flood."

Hundred will head to Cameron on Friday night at 7 p.m before visiting Beallsville Sept. 8 at 7 p.m.
