  1. The Sanderson at Athens Drive game actually started at 7 tonight unfortunately. If you were late for that one, you might as well have gone home. Athens Drive led 21-10 at the end of the first quarter, which a lot of people missed. At 7:20, the line to pay to get in was 20 people deep. Athens Drive went on to win 41-13.

    When I was a kid, all the games started at 8 and there were fewer high schools, a lot fewer. It's very difficult to know the start times from week to week. Most are at 7:30 these days but it's best to call the school to find out if you're going.
