Kiski Area football reschedules postponed games
Friday, September 4, 2020 | 1:18 PM
Earlier this week, the Kiski Area football team was forced to postpone its first two games of the season because of a covid-19 exposure.
On the same day they postponed their game with Connellsville, Kiski Area announced they would play Connellsville at 7 p.m. Sept. 21. That change left the Cavaliers with another problem though. They were set to play nonconference opponent West Allegheny four days later and teams need at least 120 hours of rest in between games.
On Friday, Kiski Area announced it would be canceling the matchup with West Allegheny, which was originally scheduled for Sept. 25 and rescheduled the original season opener with Penn Hills to Sept. 26.

After Kiski Area’s first two games against Butler and Franklin Regional were canceled because of the two-week delay to start the season, Connellsville and West Allegheny were the only two nonconference games the Cavaliers had remaining on their schedule.
Now, Kiski Area will still get to start its season with a nonconference game before beginning the Class 5A Northeast Conference schedule against Penn Hills on Sept. 26.
