On Saturday, Nov. 14, the Wilkes University football team will end their season taking on their rivals down the street: King’s College. The winner of the game will be able to carry bragging rights into next season and will gain the Mayor’s Cup which King’s will defend this year, as they beat the Colonels last year 27-21. Although the Colonels fought back hard in the fourth quarter, the rally was too late and the Colonels suffered a tough loss to end their season as a result. 

The series has been evenly split the last six games, with the Monarchs winning the last two head to head meetings in close contests. The Colonels will attempt to turn the tide by notching a victory of their rivals. Both teams are struggling this season, as the Colonels are 1-7 while the Monarchs are a lowly 3-5 on the year. Getting a victory on Saturday Nov. 14 will be a solid way to end the season, while the losing team will have to swallow not capturing the Mayor’s Cup for a whole year .
