COVID Again Factor in This Week’s Schedule for District 1 High School Football
UPDATE: 6:17 am, November 4, 2020 - We've just been informed that Southwood has finally found an opponent for Friday and will now host Tioga.
And so the saga that is this year's COVID influenced high school football rolls on into week number six! Before we can get to where we are, we must first know how we got here.
Due to COVID, Southwood and Airline were forced to cancel their games on October 23 and October 30. And now that they have served their quarantine time, both were ready and set to go. Yet, a late arrival last week has managed to throw Southwood another curve ball.
Because of COVID in the school, not as a result of anything directly from the football team, Benton High School was forced to cancel their games last week with Byrd High School and this week's game with none other than Southwood.
Of course Southwood is scrambling at their dead-level best to find an opponent for this Friday night, but as of this writing, those efforts have proven fruitless. We will be sure to update if and when they find another team willing to play.
So as it stands right now, here's what this week's full schedule for District 1 looks like:
