After 10 years, East Middle School stood up and punched rival West in the mouth Tuesday.
Well, at least on the football field.
The Missiles (9-0) controlled the line of scrimmage on offense and defense with a steady running game and a high-pressure pass rush to beat West for the first time in 10 years, 36-14.
Both teams entered the game undefeated and looking to win the regular-season title in the Mid-Bluegrass Conference, but East's defense took over late in the second quarter after West (8-1) had cut its lead to 16-14.
