On Wednesday, Tecumseh announced they're canceling their next two contests, citing unforeseen circumstances as the reason why. The Braves will return to the gridiron on Oct. 16.

Nort Posey also announced Wednesday that the Vikings are canceling their contest against Forest Park due to several players being in quarantine.

Both Tecumseh and North Posey joined Boonville, Mt. Vernon, and Pike Central as teams that won't be taking the field.

One team still searching for a game is Gibson Southern, due to the Wildcats sitting out because of contact tracing.

"It's definitely been overwhelming, no question about it," said Gibson Southern Athletic Director Jon Adams. "At the same time, we are willing to do that because we want to get these student-athletes on the field, on the court, whatever it may be, as quickly and as safely as possible."

Adams went on to say that the Gibson Southern Titans are still willing to play, even if the challenge were to arise as late as Friday morning.
