Beauregard found a chink in Charles Henderson’s armor and used it to their advatage all night as the Hornets downed the Trojans, 21-16 in Opelika Friday night.
Quarterback Austin Ingram was sacked 10 times as Charles Henderson could never find a rhythm offensively.
12 penalties didn’t help either as everytime it seemed the Trojans found some momentum, it was negated a the yellow flag.
Charles Henderson got on the board first with a 45-yard field goal from Robert Salmon in the first quarter.
The Hornets would answer in the second and never trail again with a 8-yard scoring pass.
Beauregard would build a 14-3 lead into the third. The pair of Hornet scoring drives totaled 73 and 72 yards, respectively.
Charles Henderson trimmed the deficit later in the third with an 11-yard touchdown pass from Ingram to Kenyatte Jones to make the score 14-10. Taderrion Myhand had a 38-yard reception in the drive to help set up the score.
With the Trojans down 21-10 in the final quarter, Ingram found De’Torrian Green for a 68-yard score. The two-point conversion failed leaving CHHS down 21-16.
Charles Henderson would get the ball back with 7:36 left in the contest, but Ingram would be sacked twice giving Beauregard possession.
Again, the Trojans would force the Hornets to punt with 3:48 left. Ingram would find Courtney Downing for 38 yards before Beauregard intercepted Ingram on the next play.
Tedarrion Myhand gave Charles Henderson life once again with an interception of his own, but the Trojans fumbled on the ensuing drive to squash any hopes of a comeback.
The Trojans will play its first home game next week as they welcome Tallassee to Veterans Memorial Stadium.
