KILMICHAEL -- With two games remaining for the Montgomery County Hornets, Friday night's home contest against Shaw will determine their 2013 fate.

The Hornets let one slip at away at Ray Brooks, when they allowed the Tigers to get their first win of the season with a 12-8 loss at Benoit.

Six turnovers for the Hornets proved costly last week in the 2-1A matchup. The Tigers went up 6-0 in first quarter, and the Hornets managed to knot the game at 6 when senior quarterback Jason Henson scored from two yards out.

The Hornets dropped to 3-6 on the season and 2-4 in 2-1A play.

Ray Brooks managed to go into the half up 12-6.

The only points in the second half came from a George Brown safety. Brown finished the game with eight tackles and two for loss. Alonzo Booker finished the game with six tackles.

Ray Brooks improved to 1-7 with a 1-4 mark in the region, while Montgomery County fell to 3-6 with a 2-4 mark in the region.

Syderrick Maiten completed 5-of-11 passes for 87 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions and rushed for 38 yards with a touchdown to lead the Tigers, followed by Tevin Carter with 91 rushing yards on 25 carries and Jamarcus Marshall with two catches for 60 yards with a touchdown.
