Penns Valley vs. Philipsburg-Osceola Football Game Canceled

An intracounty Mountain League football matchup scheduled for Friday night has been canceled after one team's players were advised to quarantine.

Penns Valley was slated to visit Philipsburg-Osceola at 7 p.m. But on Friday afternoon, Penns Valley was contacted by the Pennsylvania Department of Health and informed that a player from the Rams' opponent last week, Clearfield, has tested positive for COVID-19, according to Superintendent Brian Griffith.

All Penns Valley players who participated in the Sept. 11 opener were told to quarantine, meaning the Rams would not have enough athletes to field a team Friday night at P-O.

"The PA DOH is still researching the details of this matter and will be contacting our own Penns Valley players who were in close contact with said COVID-19 positive player," Griffith wrote.

"We are all so sorry to hear and have to share this last-minute news."

Clearfield's home game against Tyrone scheduled for Friday also was canceled.

Next Friday, Penns Valley is scheduled to host Bald Eagle Area; P-O is scheduled to host Central; and Clearfield is scheduled to visit Bellefonte.
