The Great American Rivalry Series was pleased to work with Bergen Catholic Broadcasting and GoBleachers.com to feature the famed New Jersey rivalry game between the Don Bosco Prep Ironmen and the Bergen Catholic Crusaders on Saturday, October 31 in the Series’ eleventh weekend of games for 2015. This game was presented by the United States Marine Corps and was played at Don Bosco’s Granatell Stadium. The game was broadcast LIVE by Bergen Catholic Broadcasting with GoBleachers.com for the Great American Rivalry Series Broadcast Network. Play-by-play was handled by the voice of the Crusaders Dan Long.
This is considered to be the best rivalry in New Jersey and one of the biggest in the country. Both teams are national powerhouses. The two schools are located less than 10 miles apart. Don Bosco has won 14 New Jersey State Championships while the Crusaders of Bergen Catholic have 16 trophies in their case. Currently NJ.com has Bergen ranked #2 and Don Bosco #5. The NHFB100 poll had both ranked thorough last week, but this week only Don Bosco is at #84 while Bergen Catholic dropped out of the polls after winning a nail biter in the final seconds against their other big rivalry St. Joe’s last weekend. The Crusaders downed the Ironmen 10-3 in 2014. The Ironmen lead the series 35-28-2 as they prep for their 66th meeting.
