The Poplarville Hornets overpowered their competition Friday night during their homecoming game against the Greene County Wildcats, 23-7.
The fans were filled with excitement as the Hornets played their first district game against the Wildcats.
The Hornets were leading at halftime 16-7. The Hornet’s defense would hold the Wildcats during the second half, preventing any more points. Toward the end of the fourth quarter, running back Austin Bolton would run 60 yards for the final touchdown of the game, bringing the final score to 23-7.
Friday’s win brought the Hornets’ record to 4-2; 1-0 in the district.
Next Friday, the Hornets will face the Aggies at Forrest County Agricultural High School for their second district game. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. Hope to see everyone at the game!

In preparation for a literary analysis, students in Mrs. Aube’s World Literature class spent two weeks studying nineteenth century Romantic poets, including Emily Dickinson, Edgar Allan Poe, and William Wordsworth. After a thorough introduction to poetry, students practiced counting iambic meter, studied how poets approach and develop the “sublime,” and argued about symbolism in various examples of Romantic poetry. To complete their study, students selected a poem from the nineteenth century Romantic period, prepared a claim based on their interpretation of the poem, and proved their claim correct by arguing the poet’s use of figurative language, sound devices, allusion, and symbolism. In lieu of the writing a traditional essay, many students “wrote” their literary analysis using Google Slides and found that pairing technology with their more conventional writing was the perfect way to share their findings with others.
Pictures included presentations on “Oh, Captain! My Captain!” by Walt Whitman given by Skylar B.; “Because I could not stop for Death” by Emily Dickinson given by Holli A. and Gabrielle L.; and “The Raven” by Edgar Allan Poe as presented by Zac C. and Tanner M.
The Poplarville Hornets are on a 3 game winning streak after their 28-3 victory over the Hancock Hawks Friday night at The Brett Favre Field. Poplarville’s defense was on fire with 10 sacks and 5 recovered fumbles. Jesse Pernell led all rushers in the game with 117 yards on 16 carries and 4 touchdowns.
