GREEN BAY – Local Fox River Classic Conference rivals Bay Port and Green Bay Preble put on quite a show in the high school season opener back in August.
Bay Port pulled out a 42-38 home victory, beginning a winning streak that has now reached nine games heading into the WIAA playoffs. Preble has since gone through its ups and downs but currently sits at 5-4 with a playoff berth of its own in hand.
