The oldest high school football rivalry in town is set for another chapter tonight as Manual high school welcomes Male, in a contest which sees both teams as state wide powerhouses. The game is set for a kickoff at 7:30.
Currently, Male is ranked #1 in the city of Louisville, and #3 in the state, boasting an 8-0 record. The Bulldogs are coming off an impressive upset victory over national powerhouse Trinity last week. A week prior Male claimed a win over St. Xavier, and the Bulldogs will be looking to cap off a triple header with a “W” over major rival Manual.
Meanwhile, the Rams are no slouches themselves, ranked 10th in the state, Manual is currently 6-2, with their only losses coming at the hands of, ironically St. X and Trinity. However, Manual might just have the necessary fire to upset Male in 2013’s chapter to this ongoing novel.
