February 11th, 1994 - "The Comeback"
Down 42-52 with :57 seconds left in the game, second ranked Glendale scored ten straight points to pull off the comeback! Kickapoo head coach Roy Green called it "probably the toughest loss I've ever had." Kickapoo parents, who left the game early, were surprised when victorious Glendale parents and fans entered a certain south side restaurant celebrating the big win!
January 29th, 1999 - "The Toilet Paper Game"
Top ranked Glendale did indeed rock sixth ranked Kickapoo by fifteen points before one of the best crowds in Falcon Court history. GHS students showered Kickapoo students with rolls of toilet paper after Glendale scored its first points of the game. It was the first home win over Kickapoo in five years!
January 4th, 2002 - "The Upset, Part I"
Pundits said no local team could compete with the '01-'02 Kickapoo Chiefs, and for a half, it looked like they were right (Kickapoo 31- Glendale 19). However, senior leadership, pride, and great free throw shooting in the second half propelled Glendale to one of its biggest upsets in program history! It wound up being one of only three games Kickapoo lost between 2001 and 2003.
January 22nd, 2011 - "Ending the Streak"
Nine years and 14-games of frustration against Kickapoo came to an end with Glendale's 79-75 win over the state-ranked Chiefs in the championship game of the 'Winter Classic' tournament! Due to winter weather, the second and third rounds of the event were played on the same day, which meant both teams had to win semi-final games earlier that day to setup the all-city, late-show final.
February 11th, 2014 - "The Upset, Part II"
Never before had Glendale defeated Kickapoo when the Falcons had a losing record at the time the game was played, but that factoid went down with the unexpected victory over the highly touted Chiefs. Glendale played with a great deal of emotion throughout the game, which may have made the difference.
