HS FB: South Shelby & Pittsfield showdown set starting in 2014


(WGEM) -- Rarely do tri-state football fans get to see cross river match-ups between Illinois and the Missouri, but those games are about to expand.

WGEM Sports confirmed earlier today that the South Shelby Cardinals and Pittsfield Saukees have agreed on a two-year regular season home and home scenario that will begin in the 2014 season. 

South Shelby will travel to Pittsfield in 2014, and the Saukees will cross the river into Shelbina in 2015.

Pittsfield will play both Illini West and Macomb twice during the 2012 season, and the new agreement with South Shelby will help to avoid duplicating opponents in the years following.

It will be the first head-to-head meeting in the history of the programs.
