It's Time for the RHS-South Windsor Rivalry

The Thanksgiving Eve game is will take place at Rockville High School.

It's the last game of the season for the Rockville High School football team.

And it's THE game.

Rockville has won two games so far this season, but a win Wednesday at home against South Windsor would put a huge stamp on the rebuilding process, according to Ram Coach Rob Scholtz.

Here is what the Rams have done so far this season:

Sept. 14, Rocky Hill, L 57-12
Sept. 21, Platt, L 50-0
Sept. 28, Weaver, W 40-16
Oct. 5, Bloomfield, L 31-0
Oct. 12, East Catholic, W 34-20
Oct. 19, Berlin, L 47-0
Oct. 27, Tolland, L 35-6
Nov. 2, Plainville,. L 41-12
Nov. 12, Northwest Catholic, L 51-18.

Games like the one planned for Wednesday night bring out the old athlete and coach in RHS Principal Eric Baim.

"To be honest it is just like any other tradition - bragging rights," Baim, said.

He understands the big game. Baim played at Southington and beat New Britain all three years he played.

"It was an awesome feeling. It was even better when in my last year we beat them with (future NFL Player) Tebucky Jones," Baim said.

"Then I coached at Bristol Central and beating the cross-town rival was always fun. It's truly is about the spirit of the two towns and gaining that recognition of conquering the trophy for the town and holding it for a year," Baim said.

And is goes beyond the field.

"Anytime I can have bragging rights on South Windsor Principal Dan Sullivan it is a good thing," Baim said.

The Thanksgiving Eve Game is scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m. at RHS.
