Youngstown ushers in new era in football at restored Rayen Stadium
Are you ready for some football?
Many people who used to play or attend games at a North Side stadium were more than ready.
And they got their wish a few hours after Saturday’s dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony that ushered in the newly restored Judge William Rayen Stadium, which had sat idle for nearly three decades.
The 45-minute gathering, themed “The Comeback is Complete,” preceded Saturday’s 2 p.m. kickoff between longtime rivals East High School and the Ursuline Fighting Irish on Jack Antonucci Field.
Ursuline claimed victory Saturday, rallying from an 18-0 halftime deficit to beat East, 41-24.
