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.
Fountain Valley :20
For the 14th straight time on Friday night, Edison took home the Bell in the "Battle for Bell." Fountain Valley put up a fight, but Edison was simply too strong and powerful, eventually finishing off Fountain Valley for a 42-20 victory. Edison dominated this one on the ground, as MVP Kobe Lopez carried the ball 36 times for 208 yards and one touchdown. Lopez gave all the credit to the offensive line ahead of him for the success this season and in this rivalry game. The Edison defense did enough to continually hold off the Barons from Fountain Valley, and Edison slowly killed off the game, controlling the clock on the ground. The win moves Edison to 5-4 and drops Fountain Valley to 4-5 on the season.
