Two of the best epic movies in the past 15 years that depicted historical battles are Mel Gibson’s The Patriot and Russell Crowe’s Gladiator. An equally epic battle is expected to unfold at the Gladiator Arena when the Mission Veterans Memorial Patriots visit the Roma Gladiators at 7:30 p.m. on Friday in a District 31-5A matchup.
For the past two years, the Patriots and Gladiators have engaged in on-field battles that were decided by one point each game. In both instances, Mission Veterans came out the victor with a 21-20 win last season and a 28-27 triumph in 2012.
