Pearl River Head Football Coach Jeff Michael sent out a reminder online Saturday night, just hours after the Pirates' 28-0 victory over Yonkers.
This is Jug Week.
Pearl River (1-1) will play rival at Nanuet (1-1) 1:30 p.m. Saturday in the battle for the Little Brown Jug, currently in possession of the Pirates, who won the last two meetings in the series.
Check back with Patch later this week for more on the football rivalry, but there is plenty more going on with Pearl River sports this week. There were no athletic events Monday or Tuesday with school closed for Rosh Hashanah.
