Jesuit and Christian Brothers have been playing each other since 1969, when the two teams each had the best offense and defense in the region, decided to play each other in a bid to bring the community together.
From those humble beginnings, this rivalry has evolved into one of the most heated in California. The rivalry is so intense, two peewee teams in the area that act as feeder teams for the Marauders and Falcons play each other each season in the “Junior Halo Bowl.”
This season, another crop of players will finally don the uniform and play in the game they’ve been dreaming of playing in since they were kids.
Christian Brothers :7
Coming off a disappointing 0-2 start to the season, the Jesuit Marauders were looking for a way to turn their season around, and what better way than a victory against bitter rival Christian Brothers? Jesuit certainly did just that with a dominant 44-7 victory over the Falcons to move to 1-2 on the season. In front of 12,000 fans, MVP Cade Cunningham led the offense on the ground and Scholar Athlete Hank Harvego led it through the air. But the true difference may have been at the line of scrimmage, where on both sides of the ball, Jesuit seemed to have their way with Christian Brothers. Another edition of the Holy War is in the books, and another win for Jesuit.
