Due to the heat, kickoff for Saturday’s Missouri Cyclones home Great Midwest Football League game against the Gateway Hawks at Borgia has been pushed back to 7 p.m.

Team officials will be looking to reward one lucky fan at the game. For each $5 paid admission (13-over), fans will receive a raffle ticket for a halftime competition to kick a field goal for a gift card. Fans can buy additional raffle chances for $1 per ticket or six for $5.

Gates will open an hour before kickoff.

The Cyclones (5-1) will be looking to conclude what has turned into a three-game homestand with a positive result against the Hawks (3-3).
