Town of Chenango, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Chenango Forks and Chenango Valley are ready to battle in the Backyard Brawl.

Chenango Forks is coming off a shutout loss to Greene last week.

The Blue Devils are looking to bounce back.

But the team doesn't need any motivation, taking on rival Chenango Valley.

Forks has won every game since 1994, but that doesn't matter to this year's team.

"It's been going on for a long time and ya know, it's the battle of Chenango. The kids know each other. A lot of them played sports, youth sport together and they're buddies and I think it's a fun rivalry more than anything else...it's fun to be a part of," says Blue Devils head coach Dave Hogan.

The Backyard brawl is Saturday afternoon at 1:30 pm at Chenango Forks high school.
