PHILLIPSBURG — Phillipsburg’s 18-game winning streak is no more, thanks to the Hesston Swathers.

The Swathers’ high-octane offense was again clicking on all cylinders Friday as they outscored Phillipsburg 38-26 to advance to the semifinals of the Class 3A state playoffs.

Game information is not available. The victory earns the Swathers a home game on Friday against 12-0 Hoisington, which blew out Garden Plain, 49-8. Hesston lost to Garden Plain earlier this season.

Hesston has now won eight in a row and is 9-3 overall.

Nemaha Valley plays at Rossville in the other semi.
