For the Catawba County Hornets, the strongest storm came after their game on Saturday.
The Hornets (3-1) scored 28 straight points against the Virginia Storm on their way to a 44-14 victory in the Central Carolinas Football League â€” the teamâ€™s third league win of the season.
The win comes one week after a frustrating 38-14 home loss to the Iredell Warriors, in which the Hornetsâ€™ turnovers and lack of scoring doomed them. Neither of those happened Saturday.
Itâ€™s a busy weekend for the Catawba County Hornets, who are preparing to host their fifth annual camp and play a game on the same day.
The Hornets, along with the Newton Parks and Recreation Department, are hosting a Football Skills Clinic for boys and girls age 4-12 on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Westside/Jaycee Park.
At the camp, children learn different football fundamentals and coordination skills.
Doug Frye, coach and owner of the Hornets, said he wants children to take away a few things from this camp.
