As much as Wildcats Football Coach Greg Owens would like to scrimmage Liberty-Eylau Friday at Gerald Prim Stadium, he said if rain continues the scrimmage would be moved to the Multipurpose Building field. He doesn’t want to start football season with a torn up field at Prim Stadium. The football field inside the track, is being worked on and Coach Owens described it as mushy. It is being prepared to be home for soccer teams this year while Prim Stadium undergoes renovation once football season ends.
If the scrimmage ends up in the indoor facility, very few fans will be able to watch. They would probably be restricted to end zones and doorways since the field on the sides comes almost all the way to the walls.
The varsity will scrimmage Liberty-Eylau starting at 9 a.m. Friday. Plans call for a game-like four quarters of about ten minutes apiece with the game clock being stopped like a regular game. There will be no kickoffs. The Wildcats JV and freshmen teams are expected to start scrimmage at around 10:30 a.m. Friday.
