Hillside still No. 5 despite 0-2 start
It is hard to believe that Durham Hillside is 0-2, but the Hornets find themselves in that position even though they still are capable of making a deep playoff run.
The Hornets dropped their opener to New Bern 12-0, and were stopped inside the 10 as time expired in a 16-13 loss to top-ranked Southern Durham last week.
