Hornets avenge ‘08 loss to Orrick with 51-13 win

November 20, 2009
Penney High School

A year ago the Hornets'

undefeated football season was

brought to a screeching halt by

the Orrick Bearcats. The Penney

High Hornets were given the

opportunity to avenge last

year's loss on Monday, Nov. 9,

and the Hornets redeemed

themselves while obliterating

Orrick's 40 game winning

streak with a 51-13 victory.

Hamilton wasted no time

establishing their dominance.

Keagan Prather busted through

the line on the first play from

scrimmage of the night and sped

down the sideline for 67 yards

and a Hornet touchdown.

Orrick's first series ended with

a punt. Hamilton took over on

the 41 yard line and, after

Trevor Dixon moved the ball 18

yards on two carries, Prather

kept the ball again and ran 41

yards for another touchdown.

Prather amassed 153 rushing

yards in six carries for a 25.5

yard average per carry. Orrick's

series ended in another punt and

the Hornets took control of the

field. On the seventh play of the

series, Prather broke free for his

final touchdown of the game.

Dixon moved the ball eight

yards in two carries, and

Andrew Straker fought the

Bearcats for 40 yards in three

carries. First quarter closed and

the Hornets led 21-0.

Dixon and Straker

manned the second and third

quarter Hornet attack. Straker

carried the ball for 117 total

rushing yards in 14 carries.

Dixon covered 209 yards during

the game on 20 carries. He

broke through tackle after tackle

to score four more touchdowns

on 59, 25, 24, and 11 yard

carries. Dylan Chadwick's five

extra point attempts were good.

On the final touchdown, the

snap was fumbled, but

Chadwick completed a pass to

Josh Pickrell for a successful

two-point conversion.

Orrick's offense

which only gained two first

downs was stymied by the

Hornet defense. Chadwick led

the squad with six tackles and

three assists. Robbie Routh

made seven solos and two

assists while Matt Schieber

stopped the Bearcats with four

solos and five assists. Brandon

Hemry frustrated the Bearcats

with five solos and two assists

and one quarterback sack. TJ

Schieber had five solos and

three assists.❦
