Seals roll, seek 2nd state championship since 2009
Nov. 17. Selinsgrove. Temperatures may have dipped to near freezing at Friday night’s District 4 Class AAA football championship game, but that didn’t chill the enthusiasm of the thousands of fans who braved the cold weather to cheer on either the Milton or Selinsgrove high teams.
In the end, the Seals were hot, notching a 31-0 victory for their 12th district title since 1986 and first since they won the state crown in 2009.
Selinsgrove (9-3) earns a berth in the state playoffs and next week will face the winner of today’s game between Clearfield High and University Prep, Pittsburgh.
