We have to wait two more weeks for high school football, but the Hinesville Hurricanes’s last home game of the season is tomorrow night.

The 5-1 Canes will pit their skills against the Upstate Vikings at the Liberty County Recreation Department.

The Vikings hail from Greenville, S.C., and are 3-2 overall within the Southeastern American Football league. The ‘Canes are 6-1 and in position to make the league championship, which will be hosted in Hinesville.

The ‘Canes impressive offensive has tallied 101 total points this season and the defense has held their opponents to 32 points.

They clinched the conference title after defeating the Pit Bulls last Saturday, earning them a first round bye when the playoffs begin Aug. 21.

According to ‘Canes coach James Sharp, the ‘Canes will also host the second round playoff game at the LCRD on Aug. 28. The championship game is tentatively scheduled for 7 p.m., Sept. 11.

The local semi-professional football team’s one loss was at the hands of the Columbia Flying Raiders. The two teams will likely face off for the league crown.

The ‘Canes will play their last away game on Aug. 14 against the Tri-County Panthers.

Kickoff Saturday is scheduled for 7 p.m. Admission is $5, children under 12 free. Concessions will be available and raffle tickets will be sold. Winners will be announced and prizes given at halftime. Winners must present their tickets to claim prizes.
