After a four year hiatus Lexington and Ontario got back together of the football field last season to renew their rivalry that started back in the mid-1960's during the days of the Johnny Appleseed Conference. Come Friday night at Copeland Field the two will meet again to start off the 2013 season with the Warriors looking for their first win over their county rivals in 11 years. The Minutemen won last season at home with a strong second half 34-26. One of the things coach Dan Studer of Lexington says will be key is not making mistakes on defense, saying Ontario has too much talent that can burn you in a hurry with running back Jordan Campbell, quarterback Tyler Boatwright and receiver Cameron Mack. On the other sideline, coach Scott Kreger says the Minutemen are big up front and feature a very athletic quarterback in senior Trent Richwine who helped lead Lex's second half comeback a season ago. The Minutemen will be looking for their seventh straight win over the Warriors, the two teams did not play for four years after the 2007 contest, a 50-7 win by Lex. The last Ontario win over Lexington in football came on Friday, August 23, 2002, when after a two hour thunderstorm delay the Warriors stopped Lexington at Lex 31-18 in week one.
