Football on 10/3/14 Canceled (Forfeit) / Homecoming

Post date: Sep 30, 2014 1:38:42 PM

Unfortunately, Metro East Lutheran HS will have to forfeit the Prairie State Conference football game between our schools that was to take place on 10/3/2014. This will be a forfeit win for the Oilers and it was to be our homecoming game.

Instead, all homecoming activities will take place at the soccer game on Thursday, 10/2/14. The soccer game will take place at the high school football field at 7:00pm vs. Carlinville. There will be an admission charge of $3 for adults and $2 for students.

The soccer game on Thursday night will be a very unique event as we have not had a soccer game on the football field in over a decade. We hope to have a huge crowd with lots of enthusiasm Thursday night at soccer.

We would greatly appreciate everyone's help in getting this information communicated to as many people as possible. Football games are a great community event and when you add in homecoming it makes for a special evening. We want to make sure as many people in the community know about the change to homecoming and the forfeiture of Friday's football game.

If you have any questions, please contact the high school athletic office at 618-254-3151 or email Adam Miller at
