East Alton-Wood River's homecoming soccer match vs. Carlinville to be played tonight on the football field has been canceled due to rain.
The Oilers will now celebrate homecoming at 7 p.m. Friday on the EA-WR football field playing the Alton Redbirds in soccer. There will be a tailgate party for students and staff at 6 p.m. in the bus circle, while the 2014 homecoming court will be introduced at halftime of the soccer match.
Homecoming was originally to be celebrated during a football game between the Oilers and Metro East Lutheran Knights on Friday. Unfortunately, MELHS announced Monday it didn't have enough players to field a squad.
This will be the first time the EA-WR soccer team has played at Memorial Stadium in over a decade.
