Located near the capital of Delaware, these two teams have battled 66 times since 1935 and been playing consistently since 1961. The stadium would exceed capacity tonight on the biggest night of the year for both teams, topped off by being Caesar Rodney’s Senior Night. This game had a big stake at hand: a playoff berth for Caesar Rodney was on the line, and Dover was trying to stop them in their tracks.
