This 67 year old rivalry north of Atlanta between these two football power houses always results in a great turnout and great game. The Rivalry began when both Roswell and Milton were small farming towns in 1950 and today, both teams are entrenched in suburbia but with the same small town spirit for this old Georgia rivalry. Milton was entering the game with a 4 and 0 record whereas Roswell had a 1 and 4 record. The Roswell Hornets came to fight and prove the naysayers wrong.

The first quarter was very evenly matched – both teams’ defenses played exceptionally and they entered the second quarter tied 7-7. A few costly mistakes by Roswell in the second quarter, however, put the Milton Eagles ahead 21-7 at halftime. Roswell fumbled the ball on a drive to score and on their next possession, threw for an interception in the end zone. The energy on the Milton team only intensified after halftime and they continued to pound on the Roswell Hornets, even scoring one final time with three minutes remaining. The final score was 40-7. Milton is now 5 and 0 and Roswell 2 and 4.
