PARKING COULD BE BATTLE TOO
ASHLAND Parking and seating will be at a premium for Friday night’s Ironton-Ashland football game in Putnam Stadium.
About 900 seats — 450 on each side — have been closed off all season for safety reasons inside the 76-year-old stadium.
The Ironton-Ashland crowd is typically the biggest game of the season.
Because of construction at Verity Middle School, there will be no parking on either side of the middle school, including the grassy side near Blackburn Avenue.
Also, because of heavier than usual bus traffic, there will be no street parking on the Elm Street side of the stadium.
The only stadium parking will be on the field adjacent to the stadium.
Gates will not open until 6 p.m. Kickoff is 7:30 p.m.
The game will be aired on WBVB 97.1-FM and WIRO 1230-AM.
