We moved the ball really well through the midfield and finished on many of our opportunities. Hopefully this match will give us confidence going into the Moberly Tournament this weekend.”

The Hornets are back in action this weekend for the Moberly Tournament. They will take on MMA on Friday, and they will play Wright City and Moberly on Saturday.
