The Mideastern Conference schedule opens for six of the seven teams, setting up a short week for most of the local programs, with games set for Friday, October 2, including a key matchup between New Hanover and Hoggard.

The Wildcats will still travel to Purnett Swett for their final non-conference game as New Hanover joins Topsail, Laney, Ashley and West Brunswick in what will be a quick turnaround following Monday’s contests.

Hoggard is still scheduled to kick off against South Brunswick tonight at 7:30 p.m. at Scott Braswell Stadium along Shipyard Boulevard in Wilmington.
