There’s always been sort of a neighborhood rivalry between Rye and Rye Town/Harrison, but an extra spark has been added in the last two seasons.
It only took a couple of Titans wins.
There’s another factor to consider now. Rye Town/Harrison is now coached by Peter Thomas, a former Rye player who spent a number of years on the Garnets’ bench assisting Jason Friesen.
Rye continues to deal with some growing pains, and really hasn’t impressed. There is enough talent on hand to contend. The Garnets got a lot of practice time early in the season and back-loaded the schedule. We’ll know more about them in two weeks. The Titans are gathering momentum after learning the new system. Very few teams can match the depth here, and they do not give up many goals.
Again, I’m working on Super Bowl previews. I’ll be checking for score updates, so pass them along, please if you’re going.
