East fans, ready for some football?

Advance tickets are available for Friday’s Class A semistate football game between No. 4 Columbus East and host No. 3 Bloomington South.

Tickets are $10 at the Columbus East athletic department office, 230 S. Marr Road, 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. today and Thursday, and 7:30 a.m. to noon Friday.

That’s the same price at purchasing tickets at the gate, but without the wait.

The winner of Friday’s 7 p.m. game will meet the winner of the other Class 5A semistate matchup: No. 1 Fort Wayne Snider at No. 5 Westfield, which has a 7:30 p.m. start.

Winners of the two semistate games advance to the 7:05 p.m. Nov. 26 state finals at Lucas Oil Stadium.
