Providence Christian is hosting Houston Academy on Friday night. Bragging rights aren't the only thing on the line, as this rivalry showdown has playoff implications.
The winner will earn a berth in the 2A playoffs, while the loser will need help to make the post-season. The Raiders have owned this rivalry, winning all three games since the teams began playing in 2008.
But, HA Head Coach Jimmy Addison believes his team will be in for it's toughest game of the year on Friday night.
"This game will be totally different from any game we've played this year, from the standpoint of being a big rivalry game," Addison said. "I think you can throw the records out the window and what's happened in the past, how either team has played or what they've done.
"I think you'll see both teams play at a little higher level."
Providence Christian will host Houston Academy at 7:00 p.m. on Friday night.
