HOLLEY -- The Holley football team did not win a game a year ago.
What a difference a year makes.
On Saturday, the Hawks stunned Oakfield-Alabama, winning 16-7 over a Hornets team that went unbeaten in the Genesee Region League a year ago in compiling a 9-1 record.
Holley got on the board first on a safety when O-A had a bad snap on a punt.
O-A scored next on a 4-yard touchdown run by Jason Stanley and a Jon Fisher extra point.
The Hornets had a chance to take a 10-2 halftime lead with two seconds left in the first half, but Holley's C.J. Fallato blocked the field goal attempt.
Holley took the lead in the third quarter when Tyler Winter scored on a 30-yard run. Cadzish Norford ran in the two-point conversion, carrying O-A defenders to do it.
Holley put the game away on a 7-yard TD run by Sean Baylor in the fourth quarter.
Quarterback Guy Hills had 100 rushing yards for Holley (2-0) and also made two fumble recoveries on defense.
Preston Lawrence had an interception as Holley won the turnover battle 3-0.
Baylor finished with 16 tackles.
O-A drops to 1-1.
