HERSHEY, Pennsylvania (WKBN) – Farrell is back in the state title game for a second consecutive season as the Steelers are seeking to defend their championship. The opponent is a familiar one in Bishop Guilfoyle.

In last weekend’s 13-10 victory over Clairton, the Steelers received contributions from many including Anthony Stallworth – who ran 59 yards for the go ahead score and finished with 104 yards on the ground. Farrell’s defensive effort was the key as they forced 5 turnovers and held the Bears offense to just under 250 yards of total offense.

Bishop Guilfoyle edged Lackawanna Trail – 11-7 – in the Eastern Final. Junior Keegan Myrick scored a touchdown and gained 100 yards rushing. Konner Kiesewetter completed 66.7% of his tosses (10-15) while throwing for 131 stripes.

In the 2015 title tilt, Bishop Guilfoyle shut out Farrell – 35-0. The Marauder defense intercepted Alex Myers 4 times and held Braxton Chapman to just 29 yards rushing on 10 carries. Evan Chadbourn ran for 152 yards for the Marauders and scored twice. Josh Trybus also finished his day with 74 yards rushing as well.
