This never gets old, even after 115 previous meetings.
It’s Montague vs. Whitehall in the “Battle for the Bell,” a backyard grudge match between neighboring rivals. For the 116th time in their historic series, the Wildcats and Vikings will clash on the football field.
The latest showdown is set for 7 p.m. this Friday (Sept. 16, 2022) on Whitehall’s field. Last year, the Vikings wrestled the bell away from the Wildcats’ clutches with a 34-14 victory.
Are you ready for this? Ready or not, check out the hype video at the top of this story. It is sure to get the blood pumping!
Even better, Montague vs. Whitehall is the North Grove Brewers West Michigan Conference Game of the Week. We’ll be producing a free livestream on the CatchMark SportsNet YouTube channel as part of our comprehensive coverage.
