Kennard-Dale football to “host” first night game

The Kennard-Dale football team will “host” its first night-time football game this October. Even though it will have to go to a different state to do it.
The date for the Rams Week 8 home game against West York — originally scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 23 at 1 p.m. — has been changed to Friday Oct. 22 at 7 p.m. The game will be hosted by North Harford High School in Maryland, which is about a 15-minute drive from Kennard-Dale.
Kennard-Dale’s football field does not have lights, and the school has never hosted a Friday night football game.
“A lot of people have been working to get this going,” Kennard-Dale athletic director Gary McChalicher said. “People are really excited about it.”
McChalicher said the event will serve as a “kick-off” to the school’s Capital Fund Campaign, as it tries to raise enough money to build a lighted football stadium.
Kennard-Dale has a new coach this year — Dallastown graduate Andy Loucks — and is trying to build on back-to-back District 3 Class AAA playoff appearances.

    Mr. Clayton,
    Kennrad-Dale football program has hosted night football before. Back during the late 50’s & early 60’s night football games were played at Kennard-Dale using portable lighting.
