(11-25-17) Three teams dropped out of the this week’s SSN Consecutive Winning Streaks, Bishop Guilfoyle, Wise and Darien.

The last team to beat Bishop Guilfoyle was Homer-Center, after that loss the Marauders won 59 in a row. The Wildcats would end that streak with a 20-14 win in the District 6 Class 1A championship game on Friday night at Mansion Park.

The Marauders had a final chance to win it, but Senior Nick Schmidt batted down a pass at the Wildcats 1 yard line on fourth-and-4 with just over a minute to play to save the 20-14 win and advance to the next round of the playoffs.

Bishop Guilfoyle Senior Josh Yasulitis told the Altoona Mirror after the game:

“It’s disappointing right now. Looking back, we’re going to be 59-1 in our career, and I believe this team played our hearts out.”

The 59 consecutive wins was Pennsylvania’s second-longest win streak in history at 59 games.

Homer-Center 		0 7 0 13 — 20
Bishop Guilfoyle 	7 0 0 07 — 14

Wise had its streak ended at 40 when they lost to Quince Orchard 40-21, while Darien saw its streak end at 34 after a loss to New Caanan 27-0.

Playoffs always collect of few these streaks, in the last two weeks five schools have seen their streaks end.

State Championship


Caledonia picked up a 57-6 win over Pipestone in the Minnesota Class AA Prep Bowl on Friday at U.S. Bank Stadium. Caledonia won its three state playoff games in convincing fashion by a combined score of 144-22.

With the win the Warriors have won three straight state championship, 41 straight games and nine overall football championships.

Caledonia Head Coach Carl Fruechte told the Post-Bulletin after the game:

“It’s very special. It never gets old.”
