Football Rematch: Butler vs. Independence

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Students, parents and staff are pulling out their green, gold, red and black gear this week as they prepare for a rematch between Butler and Independence high schools. On Friday night, Dec. 4, the teams will face each other at the Providence High School stadium in the regional round of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA) playoffs. The winner of Friday night’s game will play for the state championship on Saturday, Dec. 12, at N.C. State University.

Butler is the home team for the game, which will be played at Providence High’s 6,000-seat stadium. The home stands seat about 4,000 fans and the visitors’ side seats about 2,000. Tickets will cost $8 and will not be available in advance.

“Both of these teams have incredible fans and we expect this game to sell out,” said Vicki Hamilton, CMS director of athletics. “Providence is one of the largest stadiums in the area and has more parking on campus than most of our schools. Access will be tight on Friday night, and we’re recommending fans carpool to the game.”

The game will kick off at 7:30 p.m.
