Friday's football game between Eastmont and Wenatchee has been moved from the Apple Bowl to Lions Field in Moses Lake because of poor air quality, according to a press release issued by Wenatchee High School on Wednesday afternoon.
Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
The game will still be considered a home contest for Wenatchee; therefore, WHS students with ASB cards are admitted free, as are Wenatchee High School season ticket holders.
Eastmost students with ASB cards will be required to pay. Spectators are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance at either the Wenatchee High School athletic department or Eastmont High School before 3 p.m. Friday.

* The Central Washington-Azusa Pacific football game scheduled for Saturday has been moved to Pop Keeney Stadium in Bothell because of poor air quality in Ellensburg.
The game was supposed to be Central's home opener, but wildfires burning throughout Eastern Washington have caused smoke to build up in the Kittitas Valley.
Kickoff is now set for 12:30 p.m. at the stadium, which holds 4,500 people and is home to Bothell, Inglemoor and Woodinville high schools.
Previously purchased tickets will be honored at the gate. Tickets will also be available at the stadium, while an audio broadcast will be provided on WildcatSports.com.
Central (2-1 overall, 2-0 Great Northwest Athletic Conference) and Azusa Pacific (0-3, 0-2) have played five times in football, with the Wildcats winning four of those meetings.
