(Hershey) Jeanette and Steel High were no strangers to the Hershey Park PIAA stage on Friday.  These two set the championship table in the 11AM start of our two day smorgasbord of Pennsylvania football. This opening act did not disappoint.  A furious fourth quarter had Steel High capturing its third PIAA Championship in school history 32-20 over a valiant Jeanette team.

Odell Greene was a battering ram on the ground for the Rollers racking up 195 yards and a TD on the ground.  The Rollers Defense had two sparkling pick sixes.  One by Daivin Pryor and the other  by Damien Hammonds that iced the game late in the fourth quarter.

Jeanette got on the board first with a nifty pitch and catch at the 6:15 mark of quarter one.

Steel High tied it up on their next possession with a nice run Mehki Flowers

Toby Cline who had 149 yards receiving on the day set up a score by Robert Smith to put Jeanette back on top.

Steel High had a huge drive to end the first half.  Odell Greene punched it across to tie the score at 14 as we went to the break.

 

Most of the third quarter was a back and forth between the defenses.  Steel High finally put together a drive.  The Jeanette defense stiffened so Bryan Hernandez booted it through to put Steel High in front for good.

Each defense slammed the door until midway through the fourth.  And it was the Steel High defense that got the points  Check out this pick six by Daivin Pryor

Jeanette did not go down without a fight.  Smith hit James Sanders to make it 24-20 at the 5;56 mark.  But the dagger was put in by Steel High’s Damien Hammonds pick six. The 32-20 triumph by Steel High was the Third PIAA title in school history.
