Harlem plays Evans in first home game
Harlem plays its first home football game in history Friday night on a new field against what is expected to be its most intense rivalry of the year.
The opposition will be furnished by the Evans Black Knights, who likewise are playing football for the first time in the school's history this year.
An overflow crowd is expected to jam the stadium for the game and pregame activities, including a parade downtown. Evans plans a motorcade to the game.
