How many days until the Oaks Christian-St. Bonaventure football game?
To say that Westlake Village Oaks Christian and Ventura St. Bonaventure have a rivalry might be an understatement.
"I want to play them tomorrow," St. Bonaventure football Coach Todd Therrien said in a text message.
On Thursday, the two schools played in a tense baseball game in which the fans were yelling at each other and players left their benches for one incident, according to observers. And none other than Therrien was on the public address system and happened to blurt out "bush-league play" after an Oaks Christian runner ran into the St. Bonaventure first baseman.
That triggered some anger from Oaks Christian fans.
St. Bonaventure won on Tuesday, 11-0, and Oaks Christian won on Thursday, 6-0. Come fall, the pads come on and the fun really begins.
