I know Fullerton - Anaheim don't play each other any longer. That would've surpassed it. I think Mater Dei / Servite is the closest in terms of consecutive games played...57?
Isn't Anaheim the oldest public OC HS? Would they not have some long rivalry history?
@ Daddy I can answer the CDM vs Newport Harbor question. Newport Harbor’s 1963 squad, coached by Wayne Hughes, won the inaugural Battle of the Bay, 13-12. The Sailors lead the all-time series, 38-18. This years "BATTLE OF THE BAY" will be the 57th year the game has been played. CDM has won the last 5 in a row. It's a great game, it is everything that is "Friday Night Lights".
Where San Clemente says "One Town One Team", our city says "One Town One Winner One Loser"! Won't ever let an opportunity pass to say "Beat The Tar Outta Harbor"
SK80, the oldest high schools in Orange County are:
1889 - Santa Ana
1893 - Fullerton
1898 - Anaheim
1903 - Orange
1906 - Huntington Beach
1921 - Garden Grove & Tustin
1927 - Brea Olinda
1930 - Newport Harbor
1933 - Valencia
1934 - Laguna Beach
Bick, the county schools that have played each other for the most years are the following:
81 - Brea-Olinda vs. Valencia
63 - Huntington Beach vs. Newport Harbor
61 - Fullerton vs. La Habra
61 - Garden Grove vs. Rancho Alamitos
60 - Orange vs. Santa Ana
59 - Bolsa Grande vs. Garden Grove
57 - Bolsa Grande vs. Rancho Alamitos
57 - Buena Park vs. Sunny Hills
57 - Fullerton vs. Sunny Hills
57 - Mater Dei vs. Servite
It's obvious from that list that the Freeway and Garden Grove leagues have had a stable makeup for a very long time. And it will take someone with a lot more patience than I have to determine if all those years were consecutive or not.
1. Edison/ Fountain Valley
2. Mater Dei / Servite
3. Newport Harbor/ CDM
Like I said, I haven’t seen them all. And if you haven’t been to one of these games, do yourself a favor and check ‘em out. There is something special about attending high school football games... and rivalry games are even better, no matter how lopsided the matchup may be in a given year.
And if it were ever for the league title.... We may have to wait on that one!daddyooo wrote:NH/CDM should be even better now that its a league game.
