It's been 27 long years since Streetsboro last celebrated a football championship.

That drought has officially been squelched by the 2019 Rockets, whose storybook season continued Friday night with a 49-10 rout of host Woodridge that gave them the outright Portage Trail Conference Metro Division title.

Sophomore quarterback Maysun Klimak threw five long touchdown passes, three to junior Chris Golson, to help Streetsboro (9-0, 6-0 PTC Metro) stay unbeaten on the year. The Rockets captured their first championship since 1992, when they earned the Portage County League crown, and also clinched their first playoff berth since 2012.

"Early in the season, once we got rolling those first few games, the kids started talking about being PTC champs, and it just sort of steamrolled from there," said Streetsboro head coach Pete Thompson. "I'm happy for the kids, happy for the community. We've certainly been starving for that championship."

Golson isn't the weapon you typically fear most when facing the Rockets, who feature a 1,000-yard rusher in senior Krys Riley-Richardson along with Klimak and junior running back Donovan Washington-Perdue. But future foes will certainly know all about Golson's ability to catch the deep ball after he hauled in touchdown passes of 43, 58 and 39 yards from Klimak.

Golson finished his career night with four catches for 163 yards and three scores.

"He hasn't had as many touches, but he actually averages more per touch than the other guys," said Thompson. "He's a dynamic athlete. Our run game has been stellar all year, and Woodridge has good coaches that decided to stack the box. We had to take advantage of some things in the pass game."

Klimak also threw a pair of touchdown passes to junior Carter Giacomo, covering 19 and 33 yards. He completed 6-of-8 passes for 215 yards, with five tosses going for touchdowns.

"Most games he doesn't even throw five passes," Thompson smiled. "Our young quarterback was on tonight, very accurate, and we were able to hit some of those big plays."

The Bulldogs (3-6, 2-4) opened up the playbook and made things interesting for awhile. They used an onside kick to start the game to take a 3-0 lead on a 35-yard field goal by Carson Lehrer and successfully executed a fake punt in the second quarter.

Woodridge still fell behind 21-3 after Golson's first touchdown catch and a pair of TD runs by Riley-Richardson (14 carries, 104 yards), covering 1 and 42 yards. The Bulldogs then took advantage of a muffed punt, with senior Ben Lahoski scoring from 4 yards out to make it 21-10 early in the second quarter.

But four first-half turnovers, all of which were turned into touchdowns, wound up burying the Bulldogs.

"I was proud of our kids for the early execution," said Woodridge head coach Jeff Decker. "We knew we had to take some chances because those guys are really good, and we executed early. Even our defense did a great job of stopping the run early. Then we just made huge mistakes, mostly by young guys that gave up those big pass plays over the top. That's part of growing pains, and that's where we're at right now playing so many freshmen and sophomores."

Golson's first and second touchdown catches were on the exact same play, as he broke open deep between the sideline and seam. His third touchdown grab put the Rockets up by 25, then they cashed in on a late first-half fumble with a 19-yard toss from Klimak to Giacomo to grab a comfortable 42-10 halftime cushion and initiate the running clock.

Klimak added a 38-yard TD strike to Giacomo on the first play of the fourth quarter to complete the scoring.

Streetsboro's 1992 PCL championship team finished the season 9-1, which stands as the best record in school history. The Rockets will have a chance to top that next Friday when they host Springfield in their regular-season finale.

"I told the kids at the end of the game that in the history of Streetsgoro football, 9-1 has been the best team ever," said Thompson. "We've got the ability to go 10-0 next week and make some more history for the school and community."
