Metamora, Ill. - For the first time in 2019, they're coming to Metamora. The talented and widely respected 95.5 WGLO Red Zone team of Doc Watson, Tony Johnson, and statistician Tyler Busch will be at Malone Field on Friday night, as Metamora (3-1) (2-0) hosting Dunlap (3-1) (2-0) has been selected as the station's weekly Red Zone Game of the Week.

The Redbirds and Eagles are battling to see who, at least for now, will be the last remaining undefeated (in conference play) team in the Mid-Illini and the lead in the standings. All things considered, it is Week 5, and there is plenty of football left to be played.

Metamora is coming off a 21-13 victory on the road at the Limestone Rockets, while the Eagles are also fresh off a close victory, beating Washington 28-21 at home.

This Week 5 game also serves as Metamora's annual Homecoming Game, with the dance slated for Saturday night.

Fans, as always, are encouraged to make the trip out to Malone Field for the 7:30pm kickoff, but if you are unable to make it, there are multiple easy ways to tune in.

First, there's the main way - just simply tune your FM dials to 95.5. If you'd choose to tune in online, you can go to the station's website,, or you could also download the TuneIn Radio App and search for "WGLO".
