Cyclones, Warriors bring robust rushing attacks into confrontation2:32 am | October 4, 2013
Rushing records went out the window for Elizabethton and Happy Valley one week ago. What will the crosstown rivals have up their sleeves tonight?
The sixth-ranked Cyclones (4-1) visit the Warriors (3-3) for a key Three Rivers Conference tilt tonight that will feature a heaping helping of the ground game if it’s anything like the respective performances seven evenings ago: Elizabethton, behind Ethan Thomas’ record 312-yard outing in a 35-13 win at Tennessee High, and Happy Valley, who had a 332-yard night from Phillip Garland in a 28-26 win at Abingdon, Va.
More importantly, for the players, it’s a game of bragging rights. A game that has played out in Elizabethton’s favor with the exception of two meetings since the series began.
