Greatest Rivalry GamesWritten by: David Mika on Wednesday, August 17th, 2011
What game is the greatest rivalry game in Pennsylvania? Here are a couple of games that come to mind for me.
1) Easton Area vs. Phillipsburg NJ – The annual Thanksgiving game has drawn as many as 20,000 fans. The two cities are separated by a bridge the crosses the Delaware River. This game has been televised on ESPN a couple of times. They even did a replay game of the 1993 game.
2) Mount Carmel vs. Shamokin – This game is known as the “Coal Bucket Game”.
3) Pottsville vs. Reading – Pottsville won last year’s “Lump of Coal” trophy with a 29-21 OT win over Reading.
4) Stroudsburg vs. East Stroudsburg South – These teams battle every Thanksgiving for the chance to keep the “Little Brown Jug”.
