Make it a clean sweep for the football program at Korah.

Less than 24 hours after the senior team won it’s first city title since 1995, the junior program used the run game to repeat as city champs in a 52-27 win over St. Mary’s Saturday afternoon at Superior Heights.

The Colts finished the day with six touchdowns on the ground. In addition to O’Flynn’s pair. Michael Nicoletta ran the ball in from 17 yards out, Mitchell Dewar had a 19-yard touchdown run, Roman Derbowka ran the ball in from three yards out, and Tyler Brechin ran the ball in from 66 yards out.

Brechin, who was named the league’s regular season MVP, also returned an interception 38 yards for a touchdown.

Braydon Grbich had a pair of touchdowns for St. Mary’s, running the ball in from 63 yards out in the third quarter before adding on a 97-yard touchdown run in the late stages of the contest. Dylan Forsyth (65-yard catch and run) and Christian Alfano (three-yard catch) also had touchdowns for the Knights.
