Southern to play Friday at Tiger Stadium

CATAWISSA RR — After a close call, Southern Columbia Superintendent Paul Caputo announced late Thursday that the new turf field will be ready in time for Friday’s scheduled football game against Mount Carmel.

Caputo previously said that contractors would be able to work through the night, under Tiger Stadium’s lighting, to have the field ready for tomorrow’s 7 p.m. kickoff.
Workers continued to place fine sand and rubber on the turf during much of Thursday.
