Eugene, OR -- The first week of the high school football season featured a rivalry matchup for the Game of the Week.
It was a rematch of last year's 5A quarterfinal game between Thurston and Churchill.
Thurston got the better of the Lancers once again with a 54-0 win behind three rushing touchdowns from Wesley Kommer.
We also take a deeper look at the rivalry game and what it means to players and coaches.
In 6A Sheldon lost to Graham Kapowsin (WA.) 21-14. The Irish lost to Graham Kapowsin to open the season last year as well.
Over in 4A Philomath did enough to defeat Junction City, 15-13.
