Watervliet Homecoming Friday night will look a little different this year. The Watervliet – Coloma football game has been cancelled and in its place will be a first round MHSAA Soccer match up between the Watervliet Panthers and the Coloma Comets. Kick off set for 7:00. The Watervliet Athletic Department received word from the Coloma Athletic Department that the Comets would not have enough players to field a team. Both schools agreed to move the Coloma vs. Watervliet district soccer game from Wednesday, October 13th to Friday, October 15th to ensure Watervliet would be able to celebrate their homecoming. All activities will continue to as planned. Starting at 4:00 with the Senior Class holding their annual Pulled Pork Dinner at the school. Pulled Pork sandwich, chips, drink, and a cookie for $ 5. The parade will start at 5:30 and wind through town followed by the Soccer game starting at 7:00. Tickets for this game will be $6 for everyone kindergarten age and older, including senior citizens; we are not able to honor passes for MHSAA post season events. We are encouraging ALL PANTHER FANS to join us at Panther Stadium for this MHSAA Soccer match up on Friday and cheer on your 2021 SAC Soccer Champions. LET’S make this event a positive one for our students, community, and athletes.
