Alleman will travel to Evergreen Park for a Class 4A state semifinal football game at 6 p.m. Saturday. Neither side could mutually agree on a date, so the Illinois High School Association made the final decision on Monday afternoon.

Gates will open at 4:30 p.m.

Starting today and lasting until Friday, Alleman will pre-sell tickets. Those interested can visit Alleman High School, 1103 40th St., Rock Island, from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the main office. Tickets are $6.

The school also is organizing a fan bus to Evergreen Park. Contact the high school at (309) 786-7793 for more information.
