Should be a fun game...
While I agree it can be exciting, I prefer the cupcake game week 10.I like this game in Week 10. I think it should be there every year.
I thought 2016 was the inadvertent whistle game? Took a 60 yard fumble recovery for a touchdown just before halftime off the board for the Burg.This game is up there with some of the biggest I can recall from the series.
2004: 4-0 WL-S defeated 4-0 Mechanicsburg 21-7 at Mechanicsburg. Tigers went on to have a perfect season and their first ever playoff appearance. Burg finished 9-1.
2008: 9-0 Mechanicsburg defeated 9-0 WLS 10-7 at Mechanicsburg. Indians won the OHC Championship and made their first trip to the regional finals.
2013: 4-2 Mechanicsburg defeated 6-0 WLS 32-22 at WLS. The 2 teams met again in the regional championship, where 10-2 Mechanicsburg defeated 10-2 WLS 34-28 in double overtime to advance to the state semifinals.
2014: 5-1 WLS defeated 5-1 Mechanicsburg 42-38 at Mechanicsburg. Both teams would lose to state champion Minster in the playoffs (Burg in OT in the 1st round and WLS got blown out in the regional championship).
2015: 5-0 Mechanicsburg blew out 4-1 WLS 44-0 despite the high anticipation. I think this may have been the Burg's best team ever as they lost 9-7 in the regional finals to state runner-up Marion Local. WLS finished 8-2 and got knocked out in the 2nd round by Marion Local.
2017: The inadvertent whistle game. 4-1 Mechanicsburg defeats 5-0 WLS at Mechanicsburg 14-7. WLS blocked a go ahead field goal attempt up 7-6 and scooped up the ball. During the return, the referees blew the play dead and called and inadvertent whistle giving the Indians another shot. They took full advantage and went for it on 4th down, converted and scored the game winning TD and 2 point conversion. The loss kept a pretty good WLS team out of the playoffs that year.
I think the 2 biggest games were 2008 and the playoff game in 2014. But this is right up there. Playoff positioning and an OHC title on the line Friday night. Go Tigers!
You curb-stomped us 31-0 in 2016.I thought 2016 was the inadvertent whistle game? Took a 60 yard fumble recovery for a touchdown just before halftime off the board for the Burg.
2014 It was a highly disputed 2OT loss to minster - looking out for your journalistic integrity
I remember a COLD week 10 game up there! Looks like this one will be that way too! Glad to know the tigers are going to be 100% and it should be a good game .
Ahhh, I love rivalry week with the prestigious, upper class, kind souls on the north end of the county. The air must be so much cleaner up there. We will just keep “slummin” down here in the back alleys of Champaign county. I hope that small, little, “trashy” roster the burg will put out there Friday doesn’t get embarrassed
