JOHNSON CITY (WJHL) — It will be a busy Friday night of high school football now that Southwest Virginia is underway.
One of the biggest games will take place right here in Johnson City
That’s where the 2-time defending big seven champion Hilltoppers will open the season with neighboring rival Elizabethton. This will be the opener for both teams.
Even though this has always been a “David versus Goliath” situation the Cyclones have at least made it interesting despite winning only once in the last 10 years.
This is a non-conference game, but it’s still one of the best rivalries in the area.
The Hilltoppers will be coming out of their brand new fieldhouse Friday night, they moved in on Wednesday.
Kick-off is Friday night at 7:30 pm.
