CABELL COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- If you can't get to Cabell Midland's playoff game this weekend against Martinsburg, you can still watch, from the your home.
The second-round state playoff game, which will be played Saturday, November 23, at 1:30 p.m. in Martinsburg, will be streamed online.
According to a press release, the West Virginia Secondary Schools Activities Commission (WVSSAC) is working with the National Federation Network and Play On Sports to stream high school athletic competitions live on the Internet.
This week, the Cabell Midland vs. Martinsburg game was selected by the WVSSAC for the webcast.
One of the main goals of their effort is to allow West Virginia family members serving in the military overseas an opportunity to see their students play live and in real time.
"Last week a family member in the Middle East while in the military watched the volleyball tournament and his niece play for a state championship," wrote Butch Powell of the WVSSAC in an email to Cabell Midland Principal, Kelly Daniels.
Principal Daniels says she thinks the effort is extremely worthwhile. "When I read Butch's email, it reminded me that we have kids with families in other parts of the world, fighting for freedom, working, etc. They might not ever get an opportunity to see their loved ones play without this service."
There is a subscription that viewers will have to pay. It is $9.95 for a day pass, $14.95 for a monthly pass, $49.95 for a season pass, and $89.95 for an annual pass.
