Pleasanton Preps: Amador v. Foothill football game isn't the season finale? What a joke

Original post made on Oct 23, 2019

Due to the absolute genius of the East Bay Athletic League schedule makers, Amador Valley will travel across town to take on Foothill this Friday night, and it's not the last game of the regular season.

What’s a joke is when leaving the amador parking lot Friday night that the new lot had no lights!!! Thank you pusd. What a fricken failure on your part! Plus you idiots made each parking space narrow what a fricken tight squeeze, waste of tax payers money

And to add insult to injury - Due to the schedule, FHS's Band will NOT be performing tonight as they are hosting the Annual Band Fest tomorrow. GREAT JOB on stating reality in your article as the FHS team has worked hard to be where they are at and deserve credit for doing so!

Good game - disappointing (both teams) immediately after the game. Despite the crosstown rivalry, sportsmanship is needed by both teams/coaches/schools.

You never explain why you are so upset that a rivalry game is not the last game of the season? I've never even heard of a "need" to have a rivalry game the last game of the season or even anybody ever commenting on poor scheduling of a rivalry game (other than my own personal opinion that it should never be the first game of the season)

The greatest rivalry in HS football (according to MaxPreps) was played in September this year (and yes, these 2 teams play every year).

Stanford - Cal is not the last game of the season.

So please offer the insight as to why it is critical for a rivalry game to be the last game of the season?

Don't miss out on the discussion!
