As if high school football cancellations due to COVID-19 weren’t already bad enough, Hurricane Zeta decided to pour some salt in the wound.
As of now, these are the only three games still being played on Friday and they’re about as far east as you can get. Both Pascagoula and Gautier are hosting in region 4 class 5A against Picayune and Hattiesburg respectively.
East Central and Pearl River Central doing battle in the same district despite originally moving the game to Saturday until East Central got power back on ahead of schedule.
So far, the other two games already being moved back to Saturday, starting with St. Martin playing host to West Harrison at 3 p.m.
That’ll be followed by a 6 o’clock kickoff for Gulfport at Ocean Springs.
How about a trio being pushed all the way back to Monday starting at 5 p.m. as St. Patrick makes the trip up to Collins.
As for the 6 o’clock nightcap, it’s Salem at Resurrection Catholic and Hancock at Biloxi.
Three more games still up in the air as the News 25 Game of the Week between Harrison Central and D’Iberville could either be played Saturday or Monday.
Then there’s Vancleave at Bay High and Stone at Forrest County AHS stuck in the same holding pattern.
Finally, two games unfortunately canceled altogether, those being Long Beach at Wayne County and Pass Christian at St. Stanislaus, and a really sad situation for the Pirates who’ve now played their final game of the season just like that.
