Kimberly has lost only four football games since the start of the 2013 season. Fond du Lac is responsible for half of them.

The Fox Valley Association rivals have a remarkable history of close games and exciting finishes.

From 2016 to 2019, six total meetings were decided by a total of only 24 points. The highlight came in the 2018 season opener, when Fond du Lac made a last-second field goal to win 31-28, ending the Papermakers' state-record 70-game winning streak. It was also the longest winning streak in the entire country at that time.

The two teams meet again Friday night, October 1. The game can be seen on Sports Showdown with coverage beginning at 7:00 p.m. on WACY My 32.
