The location of this yearâ€™s annual Battle for the Bell football game on Thanksgiving Day between Bristol Central and Bristol Eastern â€śhas not yet been determined,â€ť according to Bristol Superintendent of Schools Ellen Solek, despite being previously listed on the CIAC website as being scheduled to be played on the turf field at Bristol Eastern.
A tweet from the BCHS Athletics Twitter account on Sunday also stated that, â€śFinal decision on Thanksgiving Day game site has not been determined at this time. Final decision will be made at later date.â€ť
According to an email sent by Solek to the Press on Sunday morning, the location of the Thanksgiving Day game â€śwas incorrectly published on the CIAC website and is being corrected immediately.â€ť
As of Sunday afternoon, the schedule on the CIAC site had been changed to now indicate it would be played at Muzzy Field.
However, Solek added, â€śThe location of the Thanksgiving Day game has not yet been determined and is still scheduled to be played on Thursday at 10:30 a.m.â€ť
No timetable has been given by any source as to when a final decision on the site of the game will be made.
