For the first time in 10 years two neighborhood rivals will be on the same field in the Safe Auto FOX19 High School Game of the Week.
Colerain and La Salle, two school separated by less than five miles, will meet in the nightcap of the Skyline Chili Crosstown Showdown doubleheader at Miami's Yager Stadium at 8:30pm on Friday night.
"These types of games need to be played," said La Salle head coach Nate Moore. "These kind of rivalries need to be continued and we're happy to be a part of it."
"We're amped up and it (the atmosphere) will be amped up pretty good," added Colerain's Tom Bolden. "It'll be a good night."
Both coaches have expressed interest in continuing the series after this season.
FOX19 will feature extended highlights from this game on our Final Quarter highlight show at 10:45, online and on our mobile app.
