The Academy vs. Lyndon Institute Football Rivalry—118 years of history!

2012 Game score:   SJA 20 : LI 6

http://www.stjacademy.org/uploaded/photos/Athletics/Football/SJA-FootballCover-200.jpgThe football rivalry between St. Johnsbury Academy and Lyndon Institute dates back to 1894 and is one of the oldest football rivalries in New England. 

The first game was held in 1894 and the Academy won 28-0; the Academy's second team played Lyndon Institute's regular squad and it was the first time LI had ever lined up against an opponent.  There was no write-up available of the inaugural game but it has continued as a tradition for both schools ever since. 

"The Game" spans 118 years with 108 games played to date. (Games were suspended in 1897, 1898, from 1900 to 1904, from 1906 to 1907, 1909, 1911, from 1914 to 1918, 1922, and 1927.) Total wins/loses for the Academy are:

During the week before The Game, the Academy campus and the entire St. Johnsbury community prepare for The Game with dedications to football players in the local media, Pep Chapel, a parade with class floats, and a bonfire—all building the anticipation for the great game.
