The team will also be providing a professional fireworks display following the football contest around 8 p.m. that is estimated to be 20 minutes in length.
Tickets are $5 at the gate. Kids under 12 free.
The Tigers look to cap off their 10th anniversary season with a win and an Northeastern Football Alliance championship over the Troy Fighting Irish who are looking to win their fourth straight championship. Both teams are 9-2 on the season and have won their respective divisional titles. It should be an exciting game and experience for all involved.
During the event the Pembroke Youth Association will be running concessions to help raise money for the local youth sports teams in the area. Spectators from around the area are encouraged to come and enjoy the activities as well as tailgate before and after the game. There will be no place better to be on this Saturday afternoon.
