It was the Battle on the Hill -- George Washington vs. South Charleston High.
Six miles separate the two high schools and the fans, which made the first game of the 2013 football season one no one wanted to miss.
"This game is such a big deal," Quinci Shavers of Charleston said. "Because it's the biggest game of the year."
"It's been a big rivalry for i don't know how long," said Jeremy Ziegler of South Charleston, "Just GW or South Charleston, that's the game to see."
To celebrate this year's kickoff, the rivals went to East Coast Tees for their game wear. making this not only a good time for the fans, but business too.
"It is a great time for East Coast Tees," Steve Z, of East Coast Tees, said. "The dinner bell has rung. Schools back, kids want shirts, parents are trying to clothe them and get them in spirit wear. It's what we do."
George Washington went with the "Burgundy Blitz" shirt, while SC went with the classic "Battle of the Hill."
But as we all know after Thursday night, only one team can take home the title of "The Real Hill".
George Washington High School took home that title this year, beating South Charleston, 34-27.
