Friday’s North/South football Bucket game is off

The high school football Bucket game scheduled for this Friday at North Decatur has been cancelled due to contact tracing at South Decatur.

Charger AD Scott Johnson is hopeful to find a week to make up the annual rivalry game, but no date is available as of yet.

“North Decatur has spent the past 24-plus hours trying to find another opponent to play this Friday, but have not found anyone” said Johnson.  “Therefore, Week 1 will be a bye for our varsity football program.”

ND’s first opponent in 2021 will now be a Week 2 contest at Eastern Hancock on August 27.

North Decatur’s JV football team, also scheduled to play South Decatur next Monday, will now travel to Tri High for a 6 p.m. kickoff that evening.
