After years of debate, Greenwich HS plays first night football game at home
After two lawsuits and years of debate, Greenwich High School played its first home football game at night. The lights were turned on, and Greenwich HS debuted its artificial turf field. Thousands of fans gathered at the complex to watch a Greenwich victory.
Many fans are in favor of night football, saying it is hard to get to the games when they're played on Saturday afternoons. While fans were happy, those who live by the stadium were not thrilled about the game. Nearby residents complained about everything from noise to traffic. One of the biggest complaints had to do with the number of cars parked in the street. Residents say the football game turned their neighborhood into a giant parking lot.
Greenwich police say, during future football games, they will ticket any illegally parked cars.
