Emotions were running high in Monessen on Friday night. Last year, the Monessen Greyhounds ended the nation’s longest high school football winning streak when they defeated the Clairton Bears on their home field. Clairton began their streak in 2008 at Monessen and went on to win 66 consecutive games until the 2013 loss to the Hounds. Clairton came to Monessen determined to avenge last year’s loss.
From the beginning of the game, it was clear that the Bears would control the game and the scoreboard. They scored early and often. A very physical game, frustration and penalties mounted. Two Monessen players were ejected for personal fouls and unsportsmanlike conduct. Both teams combined for 18 penalties for 190 yards.
The Bears went on to beat the Greyhounds with a final score of 60-0. Game MVP, Lamont Wade, rushed 19 times for 272 yards and three touchdowns.
