If the crowd at Friday night's state semifinal football game was any indication, there will be plenty of maroon and white in the stands at M&T Bank Stadium Dec. 4.
Anderson Bus Company, Inc., is doing its part, offering Warriors fans a free mass transit option to get to the team's first state finals appearance in 22 years.
The Havre de Grace-based company is donating a free ride for all fans to get to and from the Class 1A championship game. The fleet—which is limited to 17 busses—will depart Havre de Grace High School at 10 a.m., providing fans a chance to tailgate prior to the game.
"Believe me, it's worth it," said Gary Anderson, president of Anderson Bus Company, Inc.
"I graduated from Havre de Grace," Anderson said. "It'd be nice to see a good amount of people show up and support them, cheer them on, and hopefully they'll win. And it's good for the town."
Seat reservations must be made by the end of Thursday. Interested parties should contact Hollee Sifford at 410-937-5017.
"Bring your spirit," said Sifford, a Warriors parent and an employee at the school. "Lets rock and roll."
The Warriors will play at noon against the winner of today's state semifinal between Dunbar and Fort Hill.
Tickets for the state championships are $8 per person.
Havre de Grace defeated Brunswick, 34-14, Friday night to advance to its first state final since 1988.
All four state championships will be broadcast live on WNUV Channel 54, with play-by-play by FOX 45 Sports Anchor Bruce Cunningham, with analysis by former Ravens offensive lineman Wally Williams.
