MPA Football Committee decides on championships

AUGUSTA, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - The Maine Principals' Association football committee met in Augusta today to finalize Championship plans for the new four class system which will begin with the 2013 football season.

As NEWS CENTER reported earlier, the proposal on the table was to hold one championship game at Morse Field, Alfond Stadium at The University of Maine in Orono on Friday night and three games at Fitzpatrick Stadium in Portland on Saturday. Those plans were approved by the committee Tuesday.

The 2013 Class B Championship will be held Friday night, November 22 at Morse Field. Classes A, C and D will take place Saturday November 23 at Fitzpatrick Stadium in Portland. The committee also finalized the plan to rotate the Class B, C and D games in Orono over three years and keep the Class A game in Portland.
