One of the largest rivalries in North Carolina, the Page High School Pirates look to continue their winning streak over the Grimsley High School Whirlies after handily beating the Whirlies 42-0 in 2017. Both sides of the field bring potential future DI athletes who are committed to big names like Virginia Tech and Old Dominion University, so anticipate a fast paced and intense ball game from both sides.
The Grimsley Whirlies did their best to stay with the Page Pirates on Thursday evening, but their effort wasn't enough, as Page eventually finished them off for a 21-7 victory. The Pirates have dominated the rivalry in recent years, and many expected this year to be more of the same, but Grimsley more than held their own against the high-powered offense of the Pirates. The Whirlies' defense played well, but the Pirate defense, led by MVP Alex Angus, stifled the Whirlies all evening, holding them to just seven points on the night. In the end, the score doesn't quite indicate how competitive this game was, with Page taking it 21-7.
