Clairton Storms Back to Win Second Straight PIAA Class A Title

by Jeff Fisher
Pennsylvania High School Football Huddle


A 24-point deficit didn't matter to defending Class A champ Clairton in Friday's championship game against Riverside.

Riverside raced out to an incredible 24-0 first half lead, which shocked the crowd because coming into the game, the Bears had only allowed 34 points all season. However, the second half was all Clairton as they scored 36 unanswered points to win 36-30 and push its win streak to 31 straight wins.
