On Saturday the Brentwood Eagles will play Lamar High School (5-time state champs) at 1 p.m. in a State semifinal football game at Brentwood. The winner will play in the State final on Nov. 25 in Springfield. Brentwood Police Chief Dan Fitzgerald has some things for fans and residents to know.
From Chief Fitzgerald:
- We are anticipating a huge crowd. Lamar travels well. They may bring up to 700 people.
- Gates will open at 11 am. Concessions will open at that time. The Moritz Avenue entrance will be available.
- Parking on White Avenue, between High School and St. Clair will be limited. Spaces for handicap parking and the Lamar buses will limit availability to others.
- A shuttle will be provided for those parking at McGrath or Mt. Calvary.
- Please make an effort to walk to the game if you can. Parking will be a challenge.
- Did I mention parking will be a challenge? Please be patient. Officers will be in the area to help motorists. Please be good hosts to the folks from Lamar. They are driving a long way, and will not be familiar with the area. Maybe you could offer your driveway for parking.
Those of you who live in the area of the high school, may want to plan your Saturday with all of this in mind. Good Luck Eagles!
