Clairton Wins Wpial Title with 60th Straight Victory

Article excerpt

The Clairton High School football team set a Pennsylvania record with its 60th consecutive victory, a 58-21 win against Sto-Rox in the WPIAL Class A title game this afternoon at Heinz Field.

It's the fifth consecutive WPIAL title and the sixth in seven years for the Bears. Clairton is the second team in WPIAL history to win five consecutive titles. Braddock won five Class AA titles from 1955 to 1959.

The Bears were led by tailback Tyler Boyd and quarterback Armani Ford. Boyd rushed for 144 yards on 16 carries and scored on runs of 14 and 77 yards. He also connected with Santeaun Sims on a 74-yard touchdown on a halfback option pass.

Ford completed 9 of 16 passes for 180 yards and three touchdowns. He connected with Terrish Webb on scoring passes of 22 and 24 yards, and with Titus Howard on a 35-yard scoring pass. Ford also scored on a 1-yard sneak.

Sto-Rox was led by quarterback Lenny Williams, who threw for one touchdown and ran for another.

Having Haden back would be quite welcome for Cleveland, 0-5 this year when the cornerback has been out of the lineup. He missed last week's overtime loss in Dallas due to a strained abdominal muscle and replacement Buster Skrine committed key penalties in his place.

Skrine sustained a concussion later in the game and was held out of practice earlier this week, but has taken part today.
