The Battle Of the Bruins Hits Darling Stadium

One of last year’s Division 6 first round playoff games pitted the Bruins of Western Branch against the Bruins of Bethel High School. That game came down to a field goal with :09 seconds left and Western Branch getting the best of Bethel. This year, we will not have to wait ’til the playoffs to see Western Branch play Bethel. Instead it will be the season opener for Western Branch and game two for Bethel. “It is our first game. It is a huge game. There is no hiding that,” says Western Branch Head Coach Greg Gibson on the importance of Friday night’s game. The game will be held at Darling Stadium in Hampton and should be a thriller.

Schedule Preview: Peninsula District

By now, most of us know that the districts are gone. Football programs have extended their district arrangments for the purpose of scheduling for the next two years. That means that all teams in the Peninsula district will have nine guaranteed matchups, with only one game to schedule “out-of-district”. Since all former Peninsula District teams have ten games, they’ll all have their schedule set for the fall of 2013 and 2014.
