Rutland 35, Essex 14 (10/22/10)

October 23, 2010

by Kristina Dahl

With snow flurries falling in Essex Junction VT and a temperature in the 30s, Rutland needed a win to make it to the playoffs and took a 13-0 into the half over rival Essex.

Essex came back in 3rd quarter to go ahead 14-13, but Rutland finished strong and took home the victory-as well as the playoff berth-with a final score of 35-14. The Great American Rivalry Series Game MVP was Rutland’s Troy Davine.

What is the Great American Rivalry Series?


Each fall for over a century, high school football has been the centerpiece for families and communities on Friday night. In 2004, iHigh, Inc. created the Great American Rivalry Series to celebrate this uniquely American sport and the cultural phenomenon of “Friday Night in America.” The Series shines the spotlight on top high school football rivalries across the nation, where long-standing traditions are valued, expectations are sky high, and followers are committed.
