Last Friday, September 27, 2019, Prairie secured a 38-6 victory over Battle Ground in a very hyped up rivalry game. Battle Ground was the home team in Friday’s match-up, yet both teams normally play as the home team at District Stadium.


Every year, Prairie and Battle Ground compete in a very intense environment. But Prairie worked harder and played more as a team this year. After a very tough defeat last year against Battle Ground, Prairie wanted the win more than anything. 


“Without Ian Davis’s preparation, Battle Ground’s offense would have done a lot better.” SeniorBen Matson says, “Ian was a team player which contributed heavily to our successful defense.” Battle Ground’s offense scored 6 points in the 48 minutes of play.

Prairies diverse offense utilized both running and passing plays that kept Battle Ground’s defense on their toes, and much defensive pressing or “pounding the rock” contributed to the upset and lack of Battle Ground’s touchdowns.


When asked what the rivalry game meant to him given he’s just transferred to Prairie this year Teague answered “It was pretty cool to get  a different culture with a more serious and intense rivalry…”



The atmosphere at the game was extremely intense, with the school student sections chanting and taunting back and forth at each other. After the game both student sections were kept separate to stop any fights. Luckily, both sides kept it civil and enjoyed the post game antics of picture taking and congratulating each teams outstanding players.
