ALABASTER, Ala. (WIAT) – Thompson vs. Hoover has become one of the biggest rivalries in central Alabama the last two years, and the teams meet again Friday in the CBS 42 Game of the Week.
Hoover is the No. 1 team in Class 7A. Thompson ranks 5th. The two teams have met four times over the last two seasons – twice in the regular season, twice in the playoffs.
Hoover hopes to get a measure of revenge against the Warriors, who beat the Buccaneers in the state semifinals last year.
It’s the first time Thompson has hosted Hoover in its new football stadium, which opened at the start of the 2018 season. Kickoff is at 7 p.m.
