Henderson Faces Off Against East in Week 7's “Game of the Week”

Wow! We're already in week 7 of high school football and after more than 22,000 votes, the fans have spoken and we have an NBC10 Blitz "Game of the Week" winner!

And the week 7 winner is...

West Chester Henderson at West Chester East.

The rivalry between the Warriors and the East Vikings is one with a long history.

"East opened in 1974 and we've been rivals every since," Jen Ford, secretary to the Henderson Athletic Director

"From ball boy to water boy to manager to my second year as head coach, I've been around 30 years and we've always been very intense rivals," said Henderson headcoach Steve Mitten.

The Warriors are 3-3 heading into Friday night's game, the East Vikings are 4 and 2.

"They're an incredibly dangerous football team. They've got great speed, talent and are very, very well-coached," said Mitten."We have to work really hard to be competitive."

East and head coach Dan Ellis are going into Friday's game with last week's huge win over Downingtown East when they scored 27 points in the last three minutes of the game.

"They fought so hard," Ellis told GametimePA.com. "What an unbelieveable victory for them."

You can catch the West Chester rivals at 7:30 p.m. Friday at East. Good Luck!
