Deer Creek vs. Piedmont game moved to old Yukon stadium

EDMOND — Friday’s game between Piedmont and Deer Creek has been relocated to Yukon’s old stadium, Antlers coach Grant Gower said. It will still begin at 7:30, as scheduled.

The game was moved because renovations at Deer Creek’s stadium aren’t completed yet.

“Right now it just isn’t feasible to play it there, so we decided to go ahead and move it (to Yukon),” Gower said.

The Antlers have another home game scheduled for next Friday, September 9, against Shawnee, and Gower said he hopes the stadium is ready by then.

Deer Creek has undertaken a massive athletic expansion project that will span several years. Last year, the stadium added new lights, artificial turf and a track around it. This year’s project is expanding the home stands to seat about 3,500 more people.

The next phase, which has already begun and is set to be completed by next summer, is adding a new field house west of the stadium.
