The City League football championship was postponed in response to Saturday’s shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue .

Pittsburgh Public Schools has not finalized a new date and time for the game. Allderdice and Westinghouse were originally set to play Saturday afternoon at Cupples Stadium.

“The school district determined that it was not in our best interest to play today,” said Mike Gavlik, athletic director for Pittsburgh Public Schools.

Allderdice is located in Squirrel Hill about a mile from Tree of Life synagogue.

The game was tentatively rescheduled for 6 p.m., Monday, but those plans have since changed.
