There won’t be any Friday night lights on when the Mission Eagles take on the Brownsville Hanna Golden Eagles at Sams Stadium in Brownsville tomorrow. There won’t be any Saturday night lights on either as the scheduled kickoff for this Week 1 non-district matchup between 32-5A Hanna Eagles and 32-4A Mission Eagles is 1 p.m.
While Mission head coach Mario Peña is not pleased at all that his team is going to be playing football during the heat of the day, he had no say in the matter.
“Hanna’s coach wanted to play an evening game, but he was basically given a directive by their athletic director to play at 1 p.m.,” explained Peña. “We have no say over it since they are the home team so that’s how that came about. Unfortunately, I don’t foresee there being a lot of people in the stands for a one o’clock game.”
