Two teams in must-win situations will strap on the cleats, don the pads and battle it out Friday night in Jacksonville’s Tomato Bowl, as the Indians and Nacogdoches Dragons square off in a critical game for both squads.

The contest will kick off at 7:30 p.m. in the recently renovated historical stadium. Tickets for the game are on sale through Friday’s kickoff and can be found by going to the Jacksonville High School Athletics page and clicking on the ticketing link. Tickets will only be sold online between $6-$10, with no tickets available at the gate.
