This Friday night, don’t expect to find a parking spot easily at Rocklin High school. On both the soccer pitch and the basketball court, Rocklin High will be battling their biggest rival that isn’t Whitney: the Del Oro Golden Eagles.

Soccer kicks off at 5 PM, and this match is sure to be a thriller from the opening whistle. Del Oro will be entering the game with a record of 7-2, having come fresh off a league victory against Whitney. The Thunder enters with a 5-7 record, hoping to recover their tired legs from their loss to Granite Bay on Wednesday.

Junior Jacob Sundberg, a forward for Rocklin’s soccer team, says “I’m always excited to go against a rival team in our division. It should be a good game, and I hope we win. I just hope we put on a good show and play the best we can.”

Down from the field and into the gym, tip off for the heavily anticipated basketball game is at 7. An underdog Golden Eagle team looks to upset the mighty Thunder, who boast and 18-2 record and look to add another win onto their many. Del Oro, at 7-11, also will try and put another win in the left hand column.

Senior Adam Syed, a guard on the basketball team, says “I think it’ll be a cool environment for both our juniors and seniors to compete in. It’ll for sure be a tough fought game but I think we’ll come out with the win.”

As Katy Perry once said, “TGIF,” and undoubtedly the many RHS and DOHS athletes, coaches, and fans agree with her. Be sure to be there and become part of the action, and hope there is a thunderstorm on the eagles in the sky.
