WAHPETON, N.D. (AP) — An annual football game involving the high schools in neighboring Wahpeton, North Dakota, and Breckenridge, Minn., will continue.

The future of the game that has been played every year for nearly a century was in doubt because of football district realignment in Minnesota. But the Daily News reports that the Minnesota State High School League allowed schools to request that certain matchups continue.

The league granted the request for the annual Wahpeton-Breckenridge Harvest Bowl to continue. Breckenridge athletic director and football coach Chad Fredericksen says that’s good news, because the rivalry game in late August or early September “sets the tone for the whole season.”
