Frankford-North game to be played at La Salle?

A decision concerning the location of the Thanksgiving Day football game between North Catholic and Frankford could be finalized Friday, with La Salle University being the site, according to a source close to the situation.

That source said it was important to continue tradition by playing on the holiday, not Thanksgiving Eve, and having a 9:45 a.m. kickoff time. La Salle University’s available turf field affords that.

A second source said that North officials were to receive La Salle’s proposal, including financial terms, Friday.

If acceptable to North, it would ask Frankford officials, including first-year principal Reginald Fisher and athletic director Jack Creighton, for the go-ahead.
