The first meeting was in 1966, won by Piscataway. Their last meeting was last year, also won by Piscataway.
But in between there have been some instant classics between the Chiefs and Sayreville – including two overtime wins – in a series that has been almost as even as you can get over the years: 19-18, Piscataway leads.
The 37th meeting between the schools (the Chiefs got a forfeit win in 2014) takes place Friday night at Kenny Armwood Stadium, at 6 pm, and you can hear it on the Big Central Game of the Week on Central Jersey Sports Radio. Mike Pavlichko and Dylan Allen will call all the action, with postgame and highlights during the game from Marcus Borden on Twitter. Pregame starts at 5:45.

The Chiefs are in a situation where they may need to win out their final two games to get in the playoffs. Currently in 15th place, after the 10th-ranked Bombers Friday night, they visit Memorial Stadium to take on winless New Brunswick. So a win Friday is paramount due to P’way’s precarious bubble situation.
