There won’t be any Friday Night Lights, maybe, but still a full football experience.

Coupeville High School’s regular season gridiron finale goes down Thursday, Oct. 28 — a day early, with kickoff well before dark.

Since Friday Harbor is coming to Whidbey, it’s a 4 PM start, to give the Wolverines a fighting chance to catch a ferry back home.

The reason for the game being bumped to Thursday is a Coupeville win would leave the two teams tied at 3-1 in Northwest 2B/1B League play.

If that happens, the squads turn right around two days later and play a mini-playoff game at Anacortes High School.

The Saturday event would have a noon kickoff, and be a “Kansas City tiebreaker,” in which both teams take turns trying to score from the 25-yard line.

Come out on top both Thursday and Saturday, and Coupeville “hosts” the #3 team from District 4 in a winner to state/loser-out playoff game Nov. 6 at Oak Harbor’s Memorial Stadium.

However, if Friday Harbor wins Thursday, they are the undisputed NWL champs and the Wolves turn in gear and head back to the weight room.

With Mickey Clark Field sitting right behind Coupeville Elementary, the early start time Thursday directly conflicts with school being let out, creating a potential traffic nightmare.

Therefore, ALL spectator parking before 4 PM must be at the high school baseball field’s parking lot (next to the Terry Mobile Park at 204 SW Terry Rd.), with no exceptions.

Pop out of your vehicle, take the short walk past the baseball diamond, and discover the thrill of coming in to the football field from the back entrance — where admission will still be charged.

Consider it a little adventure.
