Crusaders look for 4th straight against the Blackraiders
Sioux City, Iowa (ABC9 News)- The high school football season kicks off in a big way tonight with the 77th meeting between crosstown rivals Bishop Heelan and Sioux City East.  This year's game kicks at 7:30pm at Olsen Stadium.  It's the only time this season the two schools will meet on the football field since the teams don't play in the same class or district.

SC East ended last seasons with a 7-4 mark and playoff berth while the Crusaders ended the year unbeaten with a state championship.

Since 2010 when the schools resumed their long running series Bishop Heelan owns a 3-1 advantage over East.
