Set your DVRs again. The Alice Coyotes have another game being broadcast live on local TV. This time, it’s a big-time matchup against longtime nemesis Calallen.

The game is Thursday, Nov. 1 in Memorial Stadium. The UIL prohibits local TV stations from airing games on Friday nights, so the game was moved from Friday to Thursday. The game is being broadcast by KRIS-TV on its sister station, The CW. Locally, The CW is on channel 23 for Spectrum subscribers, 14 on DirecTV, 13 on Dish Network and 6.2 on an antenna.

The broadcast begins at 7 p.m. with a short pregame show. Kickoff is set for 7:15 p.m.

Being that late in the season and with both teams in the thick of things in the newly-formed District 15-5A, Div. II, the match-up is likely to have playoff implications. More than that, it’s Alice and Calallen, which traditionally equals a hard-fought ball game.

Alice head coach Kyle Atwood said while the Wildcats lead the Coyotes in the long-standing series, it doesn't take away from the game’s intensity.

“It’s a big game for both programs,” he said. “Calallen and Alice is always a rivalry game. Obviously, Calallen has the upper-head in the win column, but I think it’s a game that our kids get up for and play really hard in. I suspect it’ll be the same this year.”

It’ll be the second time this season that an Alice game is broadcast. The Alice and Tuloso-Midway game in September was also aired.

Atwood said he worried that since the game was being shown live on TV that the Alice fan-base wouldn’t show up for the game in Tuloso-Midway. He was wrong.

“I was worried that we wouldn’t have a lot of people there, because it had been raining, it was a road game on a Thursday night and it was on TV, but we had a good crowd show,” he said. “I think a lot of people recorded it and went to the game and came home and watched it again.”

KRIS Communications news director Paul Alexander will handle the play-by-play duties for the broadcast. Alexander is a former high school coach and a San Antonio sportscaster. KRIS sports director Alan Harwell will handle color commentating during the game.
