Friendly rivalry

The boys basketball season opens on Friday for traditional state powers Clarkston and Orchard Lake St. Mary's, and Kosmo is happy to see that the two are opening up the season against ..... each other.
The Wolves and Eaglets will hook up in a season opener at St. Mary's in what will be a game between not only strong programs, but as friendly of rivals as you can have.
As many know, St. Mary's head coach George Porritt is a native and alumn of Clarkston and roots for the Wolves harder than any other team in the state with the exception of his.
When the teams met last season, Clarkston head coach Dan Fife spoke about how hard it was to win a game against a good friend like Porritt.
All this would've made it really uncomfortable for both had they met in the Class A state quarterfinals last year, which nearly happened.
If Clarkston would've found a way to upset Bay City Western and MSU bound Matt Costello, the Wolves and Eaglets would've played in the quarterfinals.
But it didn't happen, and now the teams will meet again in the season opener for 2011-12.
It should be a great game and atmosphere in the storied St. Mary's gym.
