 The annual “Battle for the Bell” rivalry matchup between the Fountain Valley High School Barons and the Edison High School Chargers pits two nationally recognized teams against each other for a yearlong ownership of the Bell. The Bell is a reconditioned old, rusty train bell that was found in an antique store. For years, 10,000 fans have come to cheer on their team in the hopes of being on the winning side of the Bell.

This 50 year anniversary of the Battle of the Bell was ultimately a blow-out with a 56-7 win by Edison. Despite the final score, Fountain Valley was actually the first team to put a number on the board with a TD early in the first. The celebration was short lived, as It wasn't long until Edison ties the game 7-7. The tie is short lived, however, as Edison gains a 14 point lead with a successful 10-yard TD run. Both teams head into the locker rooms at halftime with the Chargers leading 28-7, and the Chargers maintain momentum in the second half, scoring an additional 28 points to take home the win with a final score of 56-7.
