Pleasantville-Camden Game to Resume at Home of Eagles
The high school football playoff game interrupted by gunfire in Pleasantville on Friday night will resume on Wednesday at 4pm at Lincoln Financial Field, home of the Philadelphia Eagles.
While the game is not open to the public, the game can be attended by a select group of family and friends.
Larry White, executive director, NJSIAA (New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association) issued the following update:
"Each high school will be provided a defined number of free passes, specifically for distribution to players’ parents and family members; the game will be closed to the general public. Specific details on the game passes will be provided shortly to both schools."
The game was originally played on Friday night and stopped with Camden holding a 6-0 lead with 4:58 left in the third quarter when gunfire originated from the Pleasantville bleachers.
The team that wins on Wednesday will face Cedar Creek H.S. on November 30 (Saturday) for the Central Group 2 Sectional Championship, at the home field of the higher seed.
