Easton Vs. P-Burg a Storied Rivalry
By Shane Simmononis
Over Thanksgiving break the great Easton/ Phillipsburg rivalry went at it again. The Easton Red Rovers faced the Phillipsburg Stateliners in the 110th anniversary of the rivalry at Lafayette’s Fisher Stadium. After the first half of play the stateliners were up 14-10, but that didn’t stop the Red Rover’s spirit.
The second half, their defense did a phenomenal job at holding the stateliners to 0 points and their offense did just what they had to do to win the game. The final score being 24-14 Easton. Easton coach Steve Shiffert is now 17-6-1 against Phillipsburg, the highest win total of any Rover coach against the Stateliners.
