It’s been 10 years since Southern Columbia (5-1) has had to play a regular season game following a loss. After falling one game-short of tying Clairton’s all-time Pennsylvania winning streak of 66 games in a row, ending the longest current winning streak in the United States, the 11-time PIAA champions are looking to put last week’s game against Wyomissing in the rearview mirror.
“Everybody has seemed very focused this week at practice. The attitude has improved with some of the guys, and now we will see how they respond off a loss,” said Southern coach Jim Roth. “This is something that is new to this group, so we will see what happens on the field. They didn’t want to be the group to lose the streak, but I am confident they have put it behind them.”
