It always seems to come down to the wire wire when Fargo South and West Fargo meet on the football field.
Both coaches think it could be the same when the teams square off again at 8 p.m. Friday night at the Fargodome.
No. 1 Fargo South (5-0) and No. 2 West Fargo (4-1) could put themselves in the driver’s seat for the Eastern Dakota Conference title with a win.
South has seven-consecutive wins against the Packers. However, the Bruins needed an 80-yard kickoff return for a touchdownÂ by Adam Boe to come away with a 19-17 victory in last year’s game.
“Whenever you are playing the best team you want to climb that ladder,” West Fargo coach Jay Gibson said. “They have a really nice club. It’s balanced. They have a nice defense and an awful good offense. We’re going to have our work cut out for us.”
“It’s a true test for us,” Bruins coach Troy Mattern said. “We don’t look at it as the No. 1 and No. 2 teams. We look at it like another EDC football game. Our goal is to be the No. 1 team (in the East) and be home for the playoffs.”
