It’s clear this team was not built for power or around a single player, but it is full of talented kids with the will to win. This is a well balanced team that HSN will continue to follow throughout the season as they continue to play teams outside the league with upcoming games against our hometown rivals Central Valley and Ambridge.

Stay with HSN for all the action and feel free to send us your kids game pictures and reports so we can expand coverage on all the Hopewell action happening this Spring to:
