Come tomorrow night, the slate is clean.

$5 will get you into the football game, plus soccer and volleyball down at Central Thursday night.

With fall break starting for both schools, it’s sure to bring out the support on both sides.

For the Creek, even though the Dores are not collecting on those five dollar tickets, it’s still very much about getting paid here in district play.

Hear from Central head coach Mark Scenters and Creek head man Antoine Sims, in the video.
