No doubt they are great rivals Brainerd and Little Falls, but the hatred between the fans of Little Falls and Fergus Falls goes unmatched in central Minnesota.
If you only knew the power of the dark side!

Well since there was an article written the the New York Times about the Roseau/Warroad rivalry, I'm going with that one.

Notice this is asking for 2 towns. Hill Murray is not a town, it's a school. I won't comment about teams up north because I'm not from there but in the metro Woodbury/Cottage Grove and Edina/EP hate each other.
Everyone hates private schools (and Edina)!!

Blaine and Centennial... Every game is a border battle, and a clash between cousins Erik and Dave Aus. So much is at stake between these two teams every single time they face off!!

If you were to make a top 3 list I think it would be:
1. Warroad/Roseau
2. WBL/HM
3. STA/CDH

Warroad/Roseau is by far the top rivalry in hockey. WBL/HM is next in the metro. St Thomas hasn't always been good at hockey, but the rivalry has been going on for longer than 100 years and with both teams being good now they have to start selling tickets way in advance and sell out when they play.

Eastview vs Apple Valley. Both Schools in the same city and less than a mile apart.

If you go downtown St. Paul in March you can usually find them there. :D

As for "old school" rivalry, my fav was Harding/Johnson.

Or in the case of Hill-Murray, you'll also find them in on the campus of the U of M in Minneapolis during March as well!

Still don't know where the town of St. Thomas Academy is though.
