This year the classic rivalry between two great football programs in the past will be more than just a win, but it will be a fight for who gets their second win of the season.
Harrisonburg has been led by junior running back Devin Medley all season long and if the team wants to win they will need to be able to stop Turner Ashby and be able to move the ball and put points on the board. Both teams have struggled to do all so far this season which will make this a classic.
This rivalry has been one to remember since for both teams they both haven’t had a winning record since 2009. This will be a good game since it is ranked in the top 20 rivalries in the state and the last three meeting have come down to who puts one more good drive together and wins by one possession.
Harrisonburg has won 14 of the last 18 meetings and hasn’t lost two in a row since in over ten years. In last year’s match up the Streaks held it close, but Turner Ashby was too much to handle as the Knights pulled away 48-36. This year’s match up should be the same way high scoring and will come down to who has a better final drive.
