The Redlands East Valley Wildcats face town rivals Redlands High School Terriers in their annual Smudgepot faceoff. Despite the game being in Dodge Stadium, the Terrier home field, the Wildcats were given home side only making the rival matchup tenser. Wildcats were confident coming off a win against Citrus Valley in the previous game, the same with the Terriers who defeated Carter in their previous game. This would be an intense and fiercely fought game as this rivalry goes back quite some time and is the battle of dominance over Redlands.
