Since this is the last in a long line of Poteau-Hilldale games, the Hornets were always known as a 3-yards-and-a-cloud-of-dust kind of team. Poteau Coach Jeff Broyles commented earlier in the week how Hilldale quarterback Dalton Cunningham was similar to former Florida Gator QB Tim Tebow for his running prowess. Cunningham might well be, but without a doubt his strong right arm was what dismantled the Poteau Pirates in their District 4A-4 opener Friday night at Costner Stadium.
Cunningham threw four touchdown passes of 99, 80, 33 and 67 yards as the Hornets stung the Pirates 42-16.
