Rivalry rears its ugly side

The football rivalry between Denfeld and Central high schools spilled into the streets Friday, according to Duluth police.

Police said a rented truck carrying about 75 Central students was stopped on its way to Denfeld Friday afternoon, and officers confiscated several clubs and chains from the youths. The students were then dispersed.

Incidents of egg and bottle throwing also occurred in the Denfeld area.
Slogans were spray-painted on sidewalks around Central over several nights, police said.

On Wednesday night, an old Volkswagen body was placed in front of Central’s main entrance. Police caught one person and issued a ticket for littering, according to detective Michael Maki.

Maki said no charges had been filed in the incidents.

“If you can get if defused, you’re satisfied,” he said.
