North Bend visits Marshfield in annual civil war match-up Friday
COOS BAY, Ore. -- A big match-up takes place Friday night as North Bend squares off against Marshfield in the annual civil war football game.
According to OSAA rankings, North Bend is ranked #1 and Marshfield #9.
The match-up has playoff implications; North Bend has beat Marshfield six consecutive times, and some senior Bulldogs say they’re looking to continue the streak.
"It's big; we don't want to be the class that loses the streak, and it would just be really great going through high school never losing to Marshfield. I feel like we have the people to do that we just have to capitalize on everything," says senior RB/LB Daniel Ferenczi.
"They're going to have a really big fan base and I know they're really pumped and I think they have a really good shot, which they're really good this year, but I don't know, we're just going to play it like every other game; just do our stuff. We're not changing anything. Just another opponent," Bulldog senior QB/DB Brody Lucero says.
Marshfield head coach Josh Line says he looks forward to a good game.
"It's always exciting to have this rivalry happen every year,” Line says. “Both communities are very supportive of their football programs and all the programs and it's really exemplified in the civil war game. It's just amazing the turnout and excitement that surrounds the game."
Kickoff is 7 p.m. at Pete Susick Stadium in Coos Bay.
