On Saturday, the Hornets whipped the West Platte Blue Jays, 61-46 in a high-scoring Class 1 state quarterfinal from Weston, with junior running back Kellen Overstreet scoring EIGHT touchdowns and rushing for 338 yards in the victory for PHS. The performance pushed Overstreet past the 3,000 yard mark on the season (3,112 yards) and is the 50th straight victory for Hamilton against Class 1 competition. The Hornets did lose two games in the regular season, coming against Class 2 schools Lathrop and Lawson. Overstreet now has 61 rushing touchdowns on the season, smashing the old state record of 54 set by Marionville's Lee Flood in 2005. In the game at Weston, the Hornets roared out of the locker room with four first-quarter touchdowns, and despite a spirited comeback from the District 7 champions from West Platte, Penney advanced to the Class 1 state semifinals and a date with the Marceline Tigers. Hamilton is now 11-2 on the season, while West Platte ends its campaign with a mark of 5-8.
