In an effort to heat up the rivalries even more, the Great American Rivalry Series staff instituted a new poll earlier this week for everyone to vote for the “Rivalry Game of the Week.” We will institute this poll every Monday morning for the remainder of the season as this one went so well.
In the short 3 days of the poll, there were 28,934 votes among the 8 games. There were two clear runaway games on the final day voting and it was a back and forth battle for both, but the Gonzaga College Prep vs. Georgetown Prep (Washington DC) game ended up as winners with 11,561 votes while the second place game was close behind as Dowling Catholic vs. Valley (Iowa) ended with 11,253, only 308 votes away.
Final results for this week:
Gonzaga (DC) vs. Georgetown Prep (DC): 11,561
Dowling Catholic vs. Valley (Iowa): 11,253
Green Bay West vs. Green Bay East (Wisconsin): 4,004
Byrnes vs. Gaffney (South Carolina): 1,023
Timpview vs. Provo (Utah): 825
Mt. Carmel vs. St. Rita (Illinois): 116
Victor Valley vs. Apple Valley (California): 80
Center vs. St. Pius X (Missouri): 72
Next week we are featuring 9 big rivalry games. Voting will be available beginning at 9 AM EST on Monday.
