City rivals Decatur and Austin faced off Friday night at Ogle Stadium, and afterward, both sides shed tears.
Austin High senior running back Cortez Shackleford couldn't help but bury his face into his hands, and teammate Cornelius Jenkins knelt to contain himself surrounded by teammates midfield.
For the Black Bears, tears of joy streamed down their cheeks as they beat their crosstown rival 17-14 for their first victory in the annual series since 2001.

Senior place-kicker Morgan Hull hit a 36-yard field goal with 3:05 left in the game for the winning margin, the last of 17 unanswered points for the winners.
'What better way to end your season than with a win in a huge rivalry game?' Austin coach David Norwood asked. 'Coach (Jere) Adcock and their entire coaching staff, they had a great game plan. It just went our way this year, that's all.'
In the season finale for both teams, Decatur and Austin each finished 4-6.
'We got ahead, but they didn't give up, and I thought it said a lot for their kids and their coaching staff,' Decatur coach Jere Adcock said. 'Both teams didn't quit playing hard all night.'
Austin fumbled three times in the first quarter, two of which resulted in Decatur touchdowns to give the Red Raiders a 14-0 lead.
The Black Bears fumbled a punt return, giving the Red Raiders the ball on the 9-yard line three minutes into the game.
Three short runs by junior Nick Beasley later and Decatur scored the first points of the game on Beasley's 2-yard touchdown.

Decatur found itself first-and-goal again when Austin fumbled on the 8-yard line with 2:55 to go in the first period.
Decatur sophomore Brooks Johnson scored his first career touchdown on a 5-yard scoring pass from senior Joe Lothspeich.
The Red Raiders led at that point 14-0.
Looking for a spark, Austin senior T.T. Martin's 25-yard fumble return was the momentum swing the Black Bears were looking for, pulling Austin within 14-7 midway through the second and the score stood at halftime.
'Thanks to the defensive linemen, me and Ty (Chancelor) had good reads,' Martin said. 'We had to find a way to win and we did.'
Austin used sophomore running back D'Nico Best and junior T.T. Mallard as its primary offensive weapons, but the pass paid dividends as well.
Sophomore Verkeneo Mann's 21-yard touchdown catch from sophomore Justin Jones tied the score at 14-14 with 3:17 left in the third.
'I thought we had a good defensive game plan. We put them in the situations we wanted to put them in and they answered the bell,' Adcock said.
Hull's field goal in the fourth proved to be the game winner and gave a hyped Austin crowd reason to rush the field.
The win was particularly sweet for Hull and his senior teammates, who beat Decatur for the first time in their final try.
'I talked to the guys and told them, 'We've got to have this,' ' Hull said. 'We haven't done this in the three years I've been here and this makes it. It really gives us a boost.'
Norwood said many of those seniors had one of their best games this season, including Chancelor, a senior linebacker.
'We had nothing to lose,' Chancelor said. 'We fought to the end and we never gave up. This is great, it being our last year and all. It couldn't be better.'

Husband and wife Chris and Gabby Adcock will spearhead an enhanced British challenge at this summer's Olympics in Rio.
The British Olympic Association has confirmed eight players have secured spots for the Games in Brazil, twice the number that competed in London four years ago.
The Adcocks, ranked seventh in the world in mixed doubles, will be the chief medal hopes while men's singles player Rajiv Ouseph will also bring Olympic experience.
They will be joined by women's singles entrant Kirsty Gilmour and two other doubles pairings. Chris Langridge and Marcus Ellis will feature in the men's doubles with Lauren Smith and Heather Olver playing in the women's event.
Team GB chef de mission Mark England said: 'I'm delighted to be able to welcome these eight players to Team GB and see another fine squad of athletes book their seats on the plane to Rio 2016.
'Chris and Gabby Adcock had a very strong year in 2015 and are one of the best mixed doubles pairs in the world while Rajiv Ouseph has long been our strongest men's singles player.

'There is plenty of talent in this squad and on their day any of these athletes can challenge the best in the world so we're looking forward to seeing them in action this summer.'
British players failed to make a significant impression at London 2012 and have not won an Olympic medal since Nathan Robertson and Gail Emms claimed silver in Athens in 2004.
But the Adcocks, Commonwealth Games gold medallists two years ago, could contend this time having won two Superseries titles, including last year's world finals in Dubai, since reforming their on-court partnership after the 2012 Games.

Ouseph, ranked 14th in the world and a two-time Commonwealth silver medallist, narrowly missed out on a place in the last 16 at Wembley Arena four years ago.
Scotland's Gilmour, ranked 15th in the world, has since emerged as Britain's leading women's singles player.
The 22-year-old from Hamilton also won a silver medal at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014.
The pairings of Langridge and Ellis, and Smith and Olver are ranked 20th and 27th in their respective events.
Jon Austin, the badminton team leader, said: 'Eight players have qualified, which equals our team size in Beijing and will be the first time since Athens in 2004 that we will have representatives in every event.
'We are in the midst of final preparations, the team are in good shape and looking forward to what lies ahead.' Sony kdl-40s2000 manual.
Langridge said: 'The Olympics is the biggest thing in badminton. I started playing at the age of 10 so to be selected for Team GB is what I've been working towards for 21 years. It's an amazing achievement.'
