Winning streaks: Clairton 48, Central Bucks West 59

For the first time during its WPIAL-record streak, now tied for longest in the nation, Clairton appeared vulnerable.

Down a dozen players, the Bears (1-0) survived a scare before beating Chartiers-Houston, 22-20, Friday.

It was the fourth time Clairton won by single digits, and its closest game since a 36-30 win over Taylor Riverside in the 2010 PIAA final. The Bears' single-digit wins came against Farrell (13-7) in an ‘09 PIAA semifinal and Rochester (14-13) in the ‘09 WPIAL final. Clairton won by an average of 39.2 points last year.

“When you win that many games in a row, you just have confidence,” Chartiers-Houston coach Terry Fetsko said. “They never wavered and played with confidence and swagger. You've got to tip your hat.”
