HERSHEY — Evan Chadbourn rushed for 151 yards and scored two touchdowns as Bishop Guilfoyledefeated Farrell Friday, 35-0, to win the PIAA Class A football championship.
The Marauders (16-0), who won their 32nd straight game, hoisted their second consecutive Class A championship trophy at Hersheypark Stadium thanks to a bruising rushing attack led by Chadbourn, Aaron Yasilitis and quarterback Josh Trybus.
Bishop Guilfoyle had four interceptions, including one returned 25 yards for a touchdown by Trybus and a 34-yard interception return by Luke Frederick that set up a Yasilitis score late in the contest.
Farrell (14-2), hoping for its first PIAA championship since 1996, managed just 85 yards of offense in the first half and was staring at a 21-0 deficit. The Steelers finished with 221 yards.
"I felt like no one thought we could do it again," Yasilitis said on winning a second straight Class A title. "We wanted to prove a lot of people wrong, we wanted to get back here and that is what we did."
Guilfoyle took the opening kickoff and marched 62 yards in 10 plays. Nine were runs with Chadbourn and Yasilitis carrying the bulk of the load, but Trybus finished the drive with a 14-yard scamper midway through the first quarter.
"It's just as sweet the second time," said Chadbourn, who had a 60-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. "The hard work is really paying off from the summer and in the weight room."
Farrell quarterback Alex Myers passed for 96 yards and rushed for 40.
