Eagles downed 20-17 before thousands of fans.
In one of the most storied football rivalries in the state, Lakewood's St. Edward High School lost the "Holy War" to visiting St. Ignatius, 20-17. And it wasn't pretty.

An estimated 11,000 people packed Lakewood Stadium to watch the contest — easily the most fans gathered at the intersection of Bunts Road and Madison Avenue all year long.

St. Edward hosts St. Ignatius in basketball showdown.
What is a rivalry without lots of excitement? Where there is St. Edward and St. Ignatius athletes (and fans) in the same building you get both. And it was a thriller.

Lakewood Patch was there to capture some of the best moments of the game.

When they reached the locker room, they dropped their eyes to the floor, to the walls, to each other — anything to avoid looking at their coach. They were afraid they had disappointed him. That was when Eric Flannery walked in, looked around and said in a relatively quiet voice — especially considering the circumstances of another raucous St. Edward-St. Ignatius game — that the Eagles were going to walk out of the locker room and turn in the biggest comeback in the history of the rivalry. And they did. Guard Delbert Love, then a junior, hit a half-court shot at the end of…
