Clairton, McGuffey schedule Week 1 football game

Monday, July 29, 2019 | 1:11 PM

Left idle by forfeits, McGuffey and Clairton will have Week 1 football games after all.

The two teams announced Monday that they will play one another Aug. 30 at McGuffey. Kickoff is 7 p.m.

McGuffey was left without a Week 1 game when Northgate announced last week that it would forfeit the nonconference matchup. Northgate lost five players to injury in a 48-0 loss to McGuffey last season, so the school’s administration decided to forfeit this year.

Clairton faced a similar situation last year. The Bears were supposed to play Mapletown in Week 1 but Mapletown forfeited in 2018. The WPIAL wanted to avoid another forfeit this year, so it scheduled an open week for both teams.
