My Final Thoughts: 

What a game.  This is a rematch from two coaches who do not like to lose and are smart enough to figure a way not too.  They are also coaches who know how to get the kids at the height of their emotions.  Now, when you add kids who also refuse to lose you have got an exceptional game to watch Under the Lights Friday Night.  That Servite Line supports their running style and the Edison line allows enough time for that Passing game to get off.  Go see this game and you will remember it for a long time.
