You might know the scores, but do you know the stories behind two of the biggest rivalries in town?
Each fall, the community comes together for two classic cross-town high school football games. Under the bright lights of North Central Colleges Benedetti-Wehrli Stadium, Naperville Central takes on North and Neuqua Valley takes on Waubonsie, in front of thousands of cheering fans accompanied by marching bands, cheerleaders, dance teams and very spirited student sections.
This year, NCTV17 went behind the scenes and beyond the highlights to capture each school’s preparations for their big moment in an all-access sports documentary, “We Are Rivals.”
We invite you to grab your fellow Huskies, Redhawks, Warriors or Wildcats and join us Jan. 17 at Wentz Concert Hall for a fun night out to benefit your local TV station. Tailgate tickets are $50 and include cocktails and hors d’oeuvres starting at 6 p.m. General admission tickets for the show, which starts at 8 p.m., are $15. Tickets can be purchased at the Wentz Concert Hall box office, online at http://tickets.noctrl.edu/ or by phone 630-637-7469. For more information, visit NCTV17.com.
Put on your school colors and join us for a fun night of rivalry!
