PORTLAND (KIII SPORTS) - The current group of Gregory-Portland Wildcats have yet to enjoy a win over rival Carroll in the "Battle of the Bridge," something they're looking to change this Friday.
G-P has lost three straight to Carroll dating back to 2012. The Wildcats are also looking for their first win this season after getting blasted by El Campo 59-10 in the opener in Week 1.
G-P had a bye week after the El Campo loss to try to rebound and prepare for new coach Jerry Long and the Tigers. The Wildcats have a new coach themselves in Rick Rhoades, who will be making his home debut against Carroll.
The "Battle of the Bridge" is the Friday Night Sports Blitz "Game of the Week" and will lead off the show.
