And the rain came down. If my current info is correct, the rain should end early afternoon today (Friday).
The Hazardous Weather Outlook for Bladen and surrounding areas continues….Today and tonight, a few strong storms with wind gusts around 45 MPH is possible today. Heavy rain may produce localized ponding of water.
Thanksgiving is one week from today.
The Bladen Sports Network will be on the air and on BladenOnline beginning at 7 p.m. tomorrow (Friday). After some hagglin’….negotiating, the game between Southwest Edgecombe and East Bladen will be broadcast. The broadcast begins at 7, gametime is 7:30 PM. I hope a large contingent of Eagle fans will make the trip. The school is located at 5912 NC 43 North, Pinetops, NC.
Southwest Edgecombe (11-1) (4-1) is no doubt a very good football team. Their lone loss was to conference foe Washington High School by a 53-13 score. In most of their games they won by two or more touchdowns.
East Bladen (10-2) finished third in the Four County conference, losing to Clinton and Wallace-Rose Hill. Hopefully the field will be in good shape after several hours of rain. The weather tomorrow is expected to be mostly sunny and cooler with highs in the mid 60s and temps dropping to the mid 30 overnight.
Should be a good football game. The winner advances in the playoffs, losers pack up the uniforms and wait til next year.

Football is a game played with arms, legs and shoulders but mostly from the neck up. Knute Rockne
