Friday Night Lights

Owen Sound | by Fred Wallace  

OSCVI Falcons and West Hill Raiders will play Friday under the lights.

The 4th annual " Friday Night Lights " Football game is set for Friday night at the OSCVI.

The Falcons will host the West Hill Raiders in  the annual match for the Whalley Cup.

The Whalley Cup has a long tradition between the two Owen Sound public high schools, but in the last four years, based on the popularity of the Friday Night Lights movie & TV program, the game has been shifted to be an evening encounter.

West Hill has won two of the three " Friday Night Lights " games against OSCVI, with the  location of the game rotating on a yearly basis

The simulated Junior game is at 6 PM, followed by the Bluewater Senior game between the Falcons and Raiders at 7 PM.

Tickets for the game are five dollars.

The proceeds from the admission charge are used to offset the cost of the lights for the game.

Any additional funds generated are kept by the hosting school.

If there are surplus funds generated this year, they will be used to assist funding of an outdoor scoreboard.

In other action tonight, the St Mary's Mustangs play at Saugeen District against the Royals at 3 PM.
