Beachwood School’s Athletic Director confirms they have canceled Friday night’s game against Orange due to COVID-19.
Leetonia alerted Sebring earlier in the week, but with such short notice, Sebring was not able to reschedule.
Leetonia and Sebring have agreed on a rescheduled game for October 29th, Week 11 of the high school football season.
Sebring McKinley Athletic Director, Brian Clark, says they are looking for a comparable Week 1 opponent on short notice.
“We are ready, willing and eager to play this weekend,” Clark said. “I was lucky to find a mid-summer replacement when Southington Chalker withdrew from a Week 2 game. It will be extremely difficult to find a school that is open this weekend at this late date.”
That’s contingent upon neither team making the OHSAA playoffs.
A little to the east, another high school is canceling games because of COVID-19.
