Don Bosco Prep (New Jersey) Wins 46th Straight...and Probably "Mythical" National Championship

There was a lot of hopes in Kentucky and South Carolina that #1 Don Bosco Prep would trip-up against its arch-rival Bergen Catholic in the New Jersey Non-Public Group IV championship.

A loss by the Ironmen would open the door for #2 Trinity (Kentucky) and #3 Gaffney (South Carolina) to have a shot at claiming MaxPreps' "mythical" national championship.  Of course, both would have to grab gold this weekend themselves.

Well, DBP wasted no time showing why it deserves its second national title in three years.  Head coach Greg Toal's team never struggled like it did in its September 30th regular season match-up against BC, rolling to a 42-14 win, which gave the school its sixth straight state title and pushed its win streak to 46 straight.

In the September 30th game, Bergen Catholic took a one-point lead into the fourth quarter before losing 33-22.

BTW...Trinity did its part by beating Scott County 62-21 Friday night to capture Kentucky's 6A title.  This afternoon, Gaffney will take-on Byrnes for South Carolina's Class AAAA Division I title.
