Thanksgiving Day High School Football

High School Football America

As I noted the other day, there's nothing better than high school football on Thanksgiving morning!

Yesterday, visit to the 104th renewal of the Easton (PA)/Phillipsburg (NJ) rivalry was made even better by a surprise snow storm that blanked the field turf at Lafayette's Fisher Stadium with a coating of white that made it a picture-perfect setting, but was deadly to the offensives.

The only points of the game came on the final play off the game when Phillipsburg kicked a 25-yard field goal in overtime to beat their arch-rival 3-0.

The win ends the Stateliners season on a high note, but Easton must now rebound quickly.  The Red Rovers face Whitehall Saturday night for a district championship and berth in the PIAA state quarterfinals. It will be Easton's third game in eight days.
