Battle on Baseline

Posted by Community Relations Department on 10/3/2012

It’s not too early to anticipate the implications of the second annual Chavez vs. Betty Fairfax football game.  Call it the Laveen Bowl, or the Battle on Baseline, these two schools, located 20 blocks apart, will square off Friday, October 12 at the Champion’s Stadium at 7 p.m.  Through the first five games, Chavez was 5-0, ranked fifth in Division II, while Betty Fairfax was 4-1 in the same division.  It is likely the two teams will still only have one loss between them when they meet, with playoff possibilities on the line.  Last year, in the first-ever meeting, the Fairfax Stampede beat the Champions.   The game, which takes place during the schools’ fall break, will be broadcast live on AM 1060 Radio and streamed on the AIA website, www.aia365.com.
