This may not be at the top of the state's chart, but walk down 119th Street for this "Battle" it will seem like Pierogi Fest on steroids. It is tied for the second longest continuous rivalry in the state, 80 straight years. In recent years the opener of the neighborhood slugfest has been pla…
The rivalry is actually rooted in basketball and the Porter County Conference, of which neither are a member in football, though they now are both part of the South Division of the Greater South Shore Conference. About 11 miles and 20 minutes separate the schools, which began playing footbal…
It's doubtful Lowell fans, today, remember 1994. It's quite sure Brickies fans do. That was the year little-known Lowell beat the mighty Brickies 28-25 in the regional and advanced to the semistate. That kick-started Lowell football. Now, the programs are in the same conference and play bone…
Another neighborhood rivalry that has lasted the test of time. Both programs have had "up" years, but strangely it seems to alternate. Both teams were good last year and the Mustangs shocked the state by pounding the Indians 27-9. The house was rocking so don't bother knocking. Like C.P.-Low…

Like most of us, this one isn't what it once was. From the mid 1990s through 2011, this one was No. 1 in the area. Nicknamed "Catholics vs. Convicts" by some in the former era, some of these games were instant classics, ramped up when the two were in the same sectional. Tommy Finn is still a…
Once nicknamed "The Hillbilly Army-Navy game," due to the large number of steel workers in the two districts up from Dixie, this may be the fiercest of 'em all. Rivals live across the street and sometimes on bunk beds. While neither program has been dominant in recent years, this one still i…
This rivalry first kicked off in 1906, when Theodore Roosevelt was in the White House. C.P. dominated early and holds a 61-40-2 advantage, but since Kirk Kennedy rebuilt Lowell's program in the early 1990s it's been a closely contested 'Dog fight ever since. "The Leather Helmet Game" has a p…
