The match pits the Wildcats against the rival Madisonville Maroons in a 7:30 P.M. contest at Perdue Field.
Football is not the only draw for the event. Athletic Director Taylor Sparks said that a 6:00 concert by Alonso Pennington would take the place of the game scheduled between Hopkinsville and Alcoa. Alcoa withdrew from the tournament in July.
“We’re also having a dunking booth with the Trigg County High School Dance team, and we’ll have some dignitaries to dunk,” Sparks said. He added that several school groups would conduct fundraisers.
Despite losing one game of what had been billed as a double-header, Sparks said “We wanted to make this a positive thing. We have aggressively sought things to do, and feel like we have plenty. We’re not going to let Alcoa dampen our spirits.”
Sparks said that the Wildcat Chevrolet Bowl was the main fund raising event for the Trigg County School’s Athletic Department.
Sparks added that the Bank of Cadiz would be holding a tailgate party prior to the game.
Wildcat Chevy General Manager Michael Oliver was similarly upbeat. “I just want to invite everyone to come out and have a big time. We have a lot of fun stuff for kids, a lot of concessions and T-shirts for sale with the event.”
Oliver also said that fans would see several new vehicles from his business on display, and had a few surprises prepared.
“It’s not just a game, but an event,” said Sparks.
