The Hinesville Hurricanes semi-professional football team will be allowed to host the championship game Saturday at Long Bell Stadium, according to ’Canes coach James Sharp.
The Southeastern American Football League originally had decided to move the game to Metter Middle school, saying it would be neutral territory. But the league changed its position, giving the Hurricanes a chance to win championship rings on their home turf.
The ’Canes will go against the Anderson Red Dawgs from South Carolina. The game will cap off a daylong football jamboree hosted by the Liberty County Recreation Department.
Tickets are $5 and children 12 and younger get in free. The championship game kicks off at 8 p.m.
