Written by: Ed Weaver on Wednesday, December 7th, 2022

 

The Rollers of Steelton-Highspire return to the Class 1A finals on Thursday afternoon against the WPIAL’s Union Area, looking to claim their fourth state championship.

The last time Steel-High made an appearance in the 1A finals was in 2020 against Jeannette, which they won 32-20.

Last week the Rollers knocked off Canton, 28-21, as they rallied from a 21-13 deficit in the middle of the third quarter against the Warriors. Steel-High tied the game up at 21-all late in the quarter then scored the winning touchdown on a 10-yard run by Ronald Bernette with 34 seconds remaining in the game.

Junior QB Alex Erby leads the 13-1 Rollers’ offense, throwing for 2,065 yards and 26 TDs with just three interceptions. Burnette has rushed for 567 yards and 11 TDs this year.

Defensively Steel-High forced three late turnovers, two fumbles and an interception in the win against Canton.
