Bladen County Schools sent out the following announcement. March 5 Friday Night Football reminders:
East Bladen will be playing at South Columbus this Friday at 7:00 p.m.
Due to their playing field being saturated, West Bladen will play their Friday night game at Tar Heel Middle school. Game time is 7:00 p.m. and the opponent has been changed to Fairmont, as Red Springs is under quarantine. No fans, with the exception of West Bladen’s parents, will be allowed because of capacity limitations. Parents are encouraged to bring their own chairs as the bleachers have limited seating capacity.
The entrance to the football field is located behind Tar Heel Middle school off of Tar Heel Ferry Road. Parking is available in the grass field adjacent to the football field. West Bladen’s JROTC cadets will be onsite to direct parking and traffic. West Bladen’s game will be the first time since October 2019 that the Friday night lights have been turned on in Tar Heel.
