*****All of those make for good rivalries from over the years and some may have more history and may be more heated than others and what about Northwest-Western Guilford???*****
NWG and Western have been going at it for many years and I would hate to see this one end, but that is what we are hearing coming out of the weekend….Hearing reports of fighting follwing the basketball game between the Hornets and Vikings this past Friday night at NWG and it sounds like it got very heated and rough and that extra security had to be called in to get everything sorted out and settled down….
It is always a big battle when NWG and Western get together, in fact the two schools are only about 6.5-7 miles apart….Very close together and have been for years….I still recall the days of playing games against NWG when I was part of the Western crowd and I lived right in the middle of the two schools….Good names from the past like Bobby Joyner, Dennis Cole, Jack Southern, Mickey Marshall, Randy Tuggle, Kommie Johnson, Robbie Soyars and many more…..
And now this Rivlary could be set to end and I suppose that would include all sports…..I remember last year, in the game for basketball with Northwest at Western, they had several fights break out after that game and it spilled out into the parking lot after the games were over and extra security had to be called in…..
Would hate to see it all end, after all of these years, but Ralph Kitley, the principal over at Northwest, has some tough decisions to make, in regards to the future of this series…..
Maybe the NWG-WG Series can not be saved, but again, “I would hate to see it all end”…..
*****On a footnote, I think this series with NWG-WG goes all the way back to about 1964 when Northwest Guilford High School first opened…..Back then Western was still Guilford High School and then they became Western Guilford around 1968 or 1969…..*****
