1. Bath vs. Elida
They’ve played in the WBL together for decades and both usually have competitive teams that are evenly matched. What more do you need for a good game of football?
2. Elida vs. Shawnee
This region is filled with players who came up together, learning the sport from a very age. The kids on these teams know each other because of that exposure, and competition will ensue.
3. Delphos Jefferson vs. Spencerville
With only 10 miles separating these schools, and the schools themselves being like each other, a rivalry was bound to crop up. Add in that they’ve been in the Northwest Conference since 1947, and the fact that the last two years the schools have gone down to the wire with each other, and magic happens.
Honorable mentions: Lima Senior vs. Findlay; Coldwater vs. Marion Local
