The North Decatur and South Decatur boys basketball teams will clash tonight for the annual Civil War battle.
The victorious team will seize the traveling trophy and a year’s worth of county supremacy.
The North Decatur Chargers (0-2) won two of the past three rivalry games, with South’s Cougars (0-2) winning 60-44 last year. North last won 44-27 two seasons ago.
Both teams are young, but hungry for their first win of the season. The victor will pick up an early-season win that is sure to boost its confidence until the two teams meet again late in the season.
Barring cancellation resulting from expected winter weather Thursday night into Friday, the junior varsity game will tip off at 6 p.m. with the varsity game to follow. The game will be rescheduled for early next week if weather forces postponement.
