By Ray Hamill — One of the most anticipated games of any season here on the North Coast will be even more so this year after everything both teams have gone through since they last faced off.
The annual Milk Can game between Ferndale and Fortuna will take place on Saturday, with both teams unbeaten after their openers last weekend.
And the game will be played a little earlier than originally planned, with kickoff now set for 1 p.m.
The showdown, which will be broadcast live on Mix 95.1 FM, has been moved forward after the cancelation of the JV game.
Because of some injuries at both the JV and varsity level, the Ferndale Wildcats made the decision to field just a varsity team for the weekend.
According to head coach Clint McClurg, however, the Cats are hoping to have enough players back to field both teams next week.
