Two more area high school football games scheduled for Friday were canceled Thursday afternoon.
“Due to Covid protocols, the Dorman varsity football game that was scheduled at Hillcrest on Friday has been canceled,” Dorman athletic director Flynn Harrell said in a statement Thursday afternoon.
The move left Hillcrest seeking an opponent for Friday, according to head coach Anthony Frate.
Chesnee announced Thursday afternoon that it’s home game against R-S Central has been canceled “due to COVID-related issues.” The Eagles hope to schedule a game for October 29th, their original open date.
Here are the other games or schools impacted for this week.
*Clinton will now play Calhoun County at home Friday night instead of traveling to Swansea, Clinton coach Corey Fountain said Wednesday. The Red Devils seek their first 3-0 start since 2010.
*Polk County’s game against visiting Christ School has also been canceled due to a Polk Co. COVID issue.
*East Henderson and North Buncombe’s contest has been canceled due to COVID protocols, according to reports.
*Daniel will visit Hendersonville Friday night, facing a second straight out-of-state opponent after each team had its originally scheduled game for this week canceled.
