Lights out on matinee kickoffs?

DARLINGTON - The Friday afternoon home kickoff times, which have been a tradition for the Darlington football team may come to a halt after this season.The Southwest Wisconsin Activities Conference voted 6-2 to play Friday night or Saturday afternoon games starting with the 2010 season at a meeting with the conference principals, superintendents and athletic directors in June. The SWAL Conference first tackled the kickoff time issue at a principal and superintendent meeting in May and voted to prohibit Friday afternoon games this season. Darlington balked at Cuba City superintendent's proposal to nix the Friday afternoon kickoffs at Martens Field. Darlington doesn't have lights so night games aren't an option.
