MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — 21 high school football games next weekend has been taken off the schedule as a result of Saturday’s COVID protocols map, which has been posted on the WVDE website.
Fayette, Kanawha, Mingo and Putnam counties are red, bringing all extracurricular activities to a halt. Boone and Monongalia are orange, meaning that teams are allowed practice on a limited basis.
The new gold category, which was introduced on Tuesday, covers three counties. They are Logan, Ohio and Wyoming. These teams are allowed to play schools within their own county or play against schools in other gold counties.
Games canceled for Week 4 (September 25 & 26):
- Steubenville, Oh. at Wheeling Park
- Ripley at Oak Hill
- Capital at Huntington
- Hurricane at St. Albans
- Spring Valley at South Charleston
- Sissonville at Herbert Hoover
- Wayne at Nitro
- Musselman at George Washington
- Jefferson at Riverside (Sat.)
- Mingo Central at Poca
- Mount View at Tug Valley
- Woodrow Wilson at Morgantown
- University at Fairmont Senior
- Chapmanville at Scott
- Logan at Winfield
- Buffalo at Williamstown
- Summers County at Midland Trail
- Meadow Bridge at South Harrison
- Sherman at Ravenswood
- Van at River View (Sat.)
- Independence at Westside (Sat.)
(Reminder: Teams in the gold category can reschedule games against schools in the gold category only)
Of note: Logan County schools will remain virtual for next week, meaning no teams can play as of yet. This will eliminate the previously scheduled game between Man and Wheeling Central Catholic.
Wheeling Park, Wheeling Central and Westside could elect to schedule other ‘gold’ county schools if they choose to.
