The Wait Is Over

Battle for the Bell

A.L. Brown wins 31-19 over Concord. It was an exciting. Unfortunately we could not get enough Internet to broadcast through The Cube nor could we update our page from the stadium to let you know that we were able to broadcast on Memories 98.3 and 1410 WTIX. Please accept our apologies. We’ll try it again Friday on The Cube.
