Halifax vs. Upper Dauphin – canceled
Friday’s football game has been canceled due to health and safety reasons, announced by Halifax Athletics Department. It has not been confirmed if the decision was made due to issues with COVID-19.
Solanco vs. Warwick – postponed, makeup date TBD
Friday’s Section Two game has been postponed based on social media posts from both schools. Solanco has 22 positive COVID-19 cases in the school district, according to Solanco’s COVID-19 dashboard.
