Congratulations on a game well played!

Penney Falls to Valle in Championship Game

The Penney High Hornets traveled to the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis looking for their 4th State Football Title in school history and first since 2012. The team they would face would be Valle Catholic, a team Hamilton had defeated in two previous Championship games, 2009 and 2012.

A slow start by the Hornets, including 2 turnovers, led to a 21-0 Valle lead in the first quarter. Penney would score before the first quarter ended, but the Warriors would put the game out of reach in the second quarter, scoring four more touchdowns to Hamilton's one for a commanding 47-14 lead at the half. Although the Hornets would out point Valle in the second half, the hole was too deep and the Warriors went on to win 61-36.
