Nestled in two small towns in Central Minnesota, two teams who have been battling for nearly half a century closed down their respective towns to come out and support their high school football team. This is one of those games that gives bragging rights for the entire year until the teams play again in the fall. With this particular rivalry, wins and losses have gone back and forth amongst the schools and there is no lopsided winning record at either school. Pierz were the 2015 AAA Champions and Holdingford were the 2014 AA State Champions, so this game means a lot to not only both schools, but each town.
