It's been hot all week, and it's expected to remain hot for the next several days. Several area schools have been dismissing early because of the current heatwave, including Hannibal Middle School and Hannibal High School. We are now hearing that Friday night's varsity football game between the Hannibal Pirates and Quincy Notre Dame Raiders will start just a little bit later than normal, because of the extreme heat.

According to the Hannibal Pirates Athletics & Activities Page:

The Hannibal High School Varsity Football Game vs. QND at Porter Stadium in Hannibal on 8/30 will now have a start time of 8:00 pm due to extreme heat."

We're sure you're just as excited about the start of the high school football season as we are. Remember to visit the High School Football Schedules section of our site for information on where your favorite team will be playing each Friday night, this season.
