The Battle of Delaware?

The regular-season rivalry finale between Aragon and San Mateo is known as the “Battle of the Fleas,” this because both programs reside on Alameda de las Pulgas — “pulgas” being Spanish for “fleas.” With the projected attendance numbers going through the roof, however, Aragon head coach Steve Sell requested the game be moved from Aragon’s home field to a neutral site at San Mateo High School on Delaware Street, where MaryAnn Johnson Memorial Field can accommodate more fans.
