Big night on tap at Jimmy Lee Stadium

The new turf of Jimmy Lee Stadium has already seen some regular season action, but a big celebration is coming tomorrow night.

At 6 p.m., a ribbon cutting ceremony and dedication of the field will take place, according to an event flyer posted on he Crosby High School website. This will be a chance to acknowledge the hard work needed to make the turf field a reality.
The celebration isn’t the only thing going on, of course. There’s also a football game between Crosby and Derby, which is slated to kick off at 7 p.m.
The Bulldogs enter the game at 1-0 following last week’s 41-29 win over Woodland Regional. A solid running game turned out to be a big key for Crosby in the win.

The Red Raiders come in 0-1 after being defeated by Naugatuck by the score of 44-21. Like Crosby, Derby kept the ball on the ground, to the tune of a solid 251 yards rushing. Zaire Flowers had 127 yards and two touchdowns while Alijah Ellis tallied 72 yards.
The Red Raiders will need to make sure their defense is better against a Bulldog spread offense led by senior four-year starting quarterback Mike Marshall.
