A palpable tension resonates throughout the 219. A clash of titans is near.

It must be Week 4 of the regular season.

The Tribe snatched two victories from the Bulldogs during the last campaign. A 23-0 W morphed into a huge momentum boost for the remainder of the regular season. Not even candy corn could prove sweeter than a 9-6 October victory, which was a stepping stone to a Sectional Championship.

Crown Point’s thirst for revenge is conspicuous. The hostility between the schools is ubiquitous. But the smack talk reached an all-time high when the LC Fan Section [@lcfanssection] declared a “Dress To Impress” theme for Friday’s clash. The announcement was gasoline on the fire.

At 7:00 p.m., two bitter rivals will step between the white lines. All of the banter will fly out of the rearview mirror. A victor shall be crowned.

The crosstown showdown is about to commence.
