FALLON & FERNLEY, Nev. (KOLO) For the first time ever, Fallon and Fernley football will meet in a state championship. The Greenwave and Vaqueros will take their rivalry to unmatched heights Saturday at 4:30 p.m. at Carson High School in the 3A title game.
For these longstanding rivals separated by just 30 miles, it was two much different paths to reach the title bout. Fallon is the defending champion, also having won it 2015. Fernley hasn't reached the final game of the year in over 50 years.
Watch the video above to hear from both sides of this bitter rivalry, which is renewed Saturday for a state championship!
NOTE: Saturday's game is at 4:30 p.m., not 4 p.m. as stated in the video.
