The Glynn Academy Red Terrors and Brunswick High Pirates will renew their rivalry Friday night at Glynn County Stadium in the annual City Championship Game.
The Terrors enter this year’s meeting with a 4-3 record that includes a 28-3 victory last Friday night over Richmond Hill in their Region 2-6A opener.
The Pirates come into the game with a 3-5 record. Brunswick has lost each of its first two region games to Richmond Hill and Effingham.
Friday’s game is set for a 7:35 p.m. start.
Brunswick leads the overall series 37-35-2, but Glynn has won the last four games between the crosstown rivals.
Glynn coach Rocky Hidalgo is 4-0 versus the Pirates. This is just the second year in the rivalry for Brunswick coach Sean Pender who took over the BHS program prior to the 2017 season.
The Terrors won last year’s game 26-13.
The last win in the series for the Pirates came in the 2013 season when they decked the Terrors 32-14.
The Pirates and Terrors have met at least once each season since their first-ever game in 1968. For a complete history of the Brunswick-Glynn series, click here.
