Clairton wins fourth consecutive PIAA football title



HERSHEY, Pa. -- Clairton High School won another state championship this afternoon and stretched its state-record winning streak to 63 games with a 20-0 victory against Dunmore in the PIAA Class A championship at Hersheypark Stadium.

Clairton became only the third team in Pennsylvania history to win four PIAA titles in a row.

The Bears won this one with an exceptional defensive effort. It was the first shutout in a Class A title game since 2004 as Clairton finished the season with a 16-0 record.
