EAST PALESTINE, OH- Disappointment cast a cloud over the rivalry of East Palestine and Columbiana earlier today when it was announced that the game would be postponed due to COVID-19 protocols in Bulldog Country.
However, it didn’t take long for both teams to agree to resurrect the game in Week 11 to maintain what is still one of the most heated rivalries in the EOAC. Two teams that have the traveling trophy between them, and many bragging rights from year to year will still match up against each other in 2021.
That’s a big feather in the cap of both communities considering this will be one of the few (Sebring/Leetonia) that have been rescheduled this year.
“It’s been a long-standing rivalry and we always want to play them. If we were forced to only choose one game to play in a season…it would be against our rival” says East Palestine Head Coach Tony Foster.
The game will be played in East Palestine on October 29th and will serve as Fall Senior Night for Bulldog Activities.
