As originally reported by Southside News Today, Friday's football game between George Washington-Danville and Dinwiddie has been postponed due to positive COVID-19 tests within the GW-Danville program, causing their program to be put on pause.
The game has been rescheduled for Tuesday September 21st at 6pm. Dinwiddie will now begin their season on September 3rd when they host Heritage High School of Lynchburg.
Meanwhile, in Richmond, the John Marshall Justices continue a quarantine that forced them to miss their final scrimmage, and will not make the trip to I.C. Norcom for their scheduled opener this Friday night. The game is officially listed as postponed at this time. The Justices will now prepare, once quarantine is lifted, for a trip to Armstrong to open their season on Saturday September 11th.
Meadowbrook announced Tuesday night that, due to "uncontrollable circumstances", their game at Hermitage Friday has been postponed to Friday October 8th. There was no official cause given for the postponement.
The Washington and Lee at West Point game scheduled for Friday has been canceled, but no reason was given as to why.
To the southeast, Friday's Poquoson at Southampton football game is off, due to COVID-19. Published reports do not indicate either which school, or if both, are having issues.
