Antioch vs. Lakes game wins NBC-5's challenge for game-day destination.

This just in from Matt: "Antioch won by 100 votes — 0.6 percent of 15,445 votes." Talk about a travesty. If you go to the poll now, Geneva/Batavia has more votes than Lakes/Anitoch. You'll also see some weird selections, but that's OK. Check out our previous story for background and links.
