Best Rivalry in 2A football???
« on: August 14, 2013, 11:26:36 pm »
What's the best rivalry in 2A football. I know many will say Bearden vs Junction City or Maybe Mineral Springs vs Dierks. What do you think??

I wouldn't say JC/Bearden.  That rivalry just started.  It's good, but still building.

Clarendon vs Brinkley the Battle for the Judges Cup and County Pride. Personally this is mine
State wide
JC vs Bearden, Carlisle vs Hazen,  DA vs Barton, Rison vs Fordyce.

JC and Bearden is a great one and has become classic the last few years. Junction and Rison was starting to work into a good one before they moved up but the oldest for JC was Strong. One game Strong fans tore down the fence on their side and the stands cleared in a all out brawl at mid field. For a few years after that they didn't play each other..........

If history is important for a rivalry, then Rison vs Fordyce is at the top or very near the top (though Fordyce is a AAA team).

Nice topic.

I think just the two towns realize just how big this is. But I will say this, at least y'all haven't charged the sidelines and attacked us like Earle did a few years ago. Whom ever their coach was at the time, I hope he never finds another job coaching.

Mountainburg & Cedarville is a great rivalry between 2 teams with no tradition.... Too many unathletic rednecks though involved.

Carlisle vs. Hazen, but how can it be a rivalry when Hazen has only won 5 out of the last 25 games.  Last years game was the first time that Hazen has won at Carlisle in 20 years.  (These are not the exact stats, but pretty close)

Technically, this years game hasn't been played.  So, technically, you can't claim a win.  But, technically, payback is......well, you know.   LOL.

Good luck tonight Purple Bees

Actually Rob Zombie, Fearless has it correct.  04, 05, 09, and 12 were all Hazen wins  04 was the first time since the invention of the wheel that Hazen won at Carlisle.

I looked on the Hazen page and it says 05 09 12.  Carlisle page says the same, but it doesn't matter.  In the 90's Carlisle was a beast, and I doubt that Hazen beat them then.  Hazen didn't start beating Carlisle until Devalls Bluff students arrived, they needed help to beat Carlisle.

Gurdon vs Mineral Springs is usually a good one but with Bearden and Gurdon playing 2 classics last season and another game this year,I would like this game to become a rivalry!  :)
