England at Southside
KICKOFF • TONIGHT 7
History can be made tonight if the Southside Southerners defend their home field and get a win over the England Lions. A victory will give the Southerners a 3-0 start, which would be the best in school history. Both schools feature aggressive, attacking defenses, but the teams differ greatly on the offensive side of the ball. Southside will run a hurry-up, no-huddle and will try extend the game and create more offensive plays.
