Austin can do so online at www.ticketmaster.com or at the gates to J.C. Love Field at Pat Patterson each day of the starting 90 minutes before the first pitch.
FARMERVILLE — Despite playing in an icy mist and strong winds, Union High School was red hot Friday night.
The Farmers ignited from the start and never looked back as they raced to a 40-0 Louisiana High School Athletic Association Class 3A semifinals win over Amite High School at Doc Elliott Stadium.
Holding Amite to under 100 yards of offense on the frigid night, the Farmers recorded a second straight shutout en route to their first state championship game appearance in the Mercedes Benz Superdome since 2001.
