STANTON — The Central Montcalm Hornets expect 2013 to be a bounce back season.

All nine games are Central State Activities Association (CSAA) games for the Hornets.

The Hornets kick the season off at home against rival Chippewa Hills. The Warriors have won two straight against the Hornets after losing the prior two games.

Chippewa Hills won a shootout last year 47-32.

Other home games include Big Rapids, Holton, Lakeview and Hesperia in odd weeks. The Hornets went 1-3 against the four, including a 26-14 loss at Lakeview. That loss snapped a five-game winning streak against the Wildcats.

Road games for the Hornets include White Cloud, Morley Stanwood, Newaygo and Reed City.

Central Montcalm has beaten White Cloud five consecutive times, but has lost four straight games to Morley Stanwood.

Reed City won the CSAA last year, while Newyago finish third.

Hesperia is the final game of the year. After winning four straight years, the Hornets fell to the Panthers 19-13.
