COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - There’s nothing quite like a rivalry game.
In this case, you have a team on the rise and a team that’s in the mix for a region championship. It’s a cross-town showdown that even has a trophy. Pacelli at Brookstone is the Sports Overtime Game of the Week.
The Pacelli Vikings had a pair of lean seasons that saw them win just one game total in that stretch, but second-year head coach Mark LeGree has the Vikings going in the right direction. They’re off to a 3-2 start, 1-1 in Region-4 West, with an outside shot at their first playoff appearance in three years.
The Brookstone Cougars are looking good so far this season at 3-1, 1-0 in the subregion, a good start at earning their four straight trip to the playoffs. And in this rivalry, Brookstone has won three in a row and has claimed the Broocelli Jug 11 times in the last 13 seasons.
Kickoff is set for Friday night at 7:30 pm ET at Brookstone’s Rex Knight Field.
