Builders Return Home For Trades Day/Homecoming With Bridgewater

The Apprentice School football team returns home on Saturday to host Bridgewater College in the 16th annual Trades Day game.  This year's contest will also serve as Homecoming for the Apprentice School with a kickoff set for 1 pm.

Apprentice School comes into the game with a 1-3 record after losing last week at Gallaudet University 35-7.  Bridgewater enters the game with a 3-0 mark after defeating Shenandoah 17-14 in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference opener for the Eagles.

 

Quick Hits - Builders vs. Eagles

  • Today’s game with Bridgewater is the 29th meeting all-time between the schools as the series is tied 14-14.  Last year’s win by Bridgewater snapped a four-game Apprentice School winning streak over the Eagles
