Avonworth cancels Friday football game, Central Valley finds new opponent
Thursday, October 22, 2020 | 11:35 AM
Avonworth canceled Friday night’s football game over covid-related concerns, Central Valley athletic director Sam Cercone said Thursday.
The matchup could have impacted the Northwest Six standings, where Central Valley (6-0, 4-0) is first and Avonworth (4-2, 3-1) is second. Avonworth announced its high school campus will be closed through Sunday.
Instead, Central Valley has scheduled a nonconference game at 7 p.m. Friday against Burrell. The Bucs (2-4) were left without a Week 7 opponent when Derry temporarily shut down its football program.
The game is at Central Valley.
