GALESBURG -- Despite concerns the new football complex would not be ready, Galesburg officials announced its Western Big 6 Conference game against Alleman will be played as scheduled at VanDyke Field at 7:30 on Friday night.|
Construction was delay slightly because the Galesburg Education Association went on a two-week strike that ended last Thursday. That forced Galesburg athletic director Ralph Henning to seek a new location, potentially forcing the game to be played on Saturday. School officials said on Wednesday the home opener and stadium debut will happen on its regularly scheduled date.
"A relief," Henning said. "Granted, all the areas won't be green. But the kids will be able to play on the new field. A lot of excitement."
