HERMITAGE, Pa. (WKBN) – Farrell continues to impress as the Steelers run their undefeated season to 5-0 following its’ 26-7 win over the home-standing Hickory Hornets.
The Steelers, as a team, ran for over 200-yards led by Juelz Johnson.
Farrell opened the game by churning out a 13-play, 80-yard drive that featured six first down conversions that was capped by Kabron Smith’s 20-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Chambers to give the Steelers the early 6-0 lead.
On the Steelers’ next possession, this time it took 7-plays and it was Farrell’s quarterback Smith who called his own number to reach the endzone from one-yard away.
Hickory and Farrell both scored before intermission. The Hornets utilized a methodical 20-play drive that was highlighted by Parker Hilliard’s 8-yard catch from Zander Telesz to cut Farrell’s lead down to 5-points (12-7). However, just over a minute later, Brandon Chambers outran the Hornet defense from 43-yards to bolster the advantage back to double-digits (20-7).
Following a fumble recovery by Farrell’s Juelz Johnson to end Hickory’s initial possession of the second half, the Steelers added to its’ lead on the fifth play. Johnson went in from four yards out.
