The starting time for Friday's Region III-4A quarterfinal game between the No. 2 Carthage Bulldogs and the Crandall Pirates in Tyler has been moved up several hours because of the "possibility of severe weather."

The opening kickoff is now set for 2 p.m. Friday at Trinity Mother Frances Rose Stadium in Tyler.

Pre-game sale of tickets continues at the Bulldawg Stop until Friday morning.

Rose Stadium has a clear bag policy and a list of permitted and prohibited items are on a link posted for these plus a parking map on the CHS athletic football page.

The Bulldogs (12-0) are the home team and the Pirates (10-2) are the visitors.
