Why this game is special: These schools first met in 1917. Ocean City has won six straight. The schools play for the Mike Slaveski-Bob Thomas Memorial Award, which is named after deceased coaches Slaveski (Ocean City) and Thomas (Pleasantville).

Pleasantville update: The Greyhounds have their most wins since they finished 2-8 in 2009. Pleasantville beat Riverside 56-12 in a Nov. 15 consolation game.

Ocean City update: The Red Raiders started 0-4 but a win Thursday will give them a .500 season. Running back Frank Woolley has rushed 196 times for 1,020 yards and nine touchdowns.
