SHENANDOAH, Sept. 3 — Page County High School Athletic Director Bill Simmons announced midday Friday that tonight’s football game at Nelson County has been rescheduled for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at home.
No reason was stated for the changes in date, time and location.
The PCHS football team will be looking to even out its record after suffering a season-opening loss to Central of Woodstock, 49-15, last Friday night.
The Panther faithful are asked to note the time change, as well as the location change. The game was originally scheduled as a non-district, road game with a typical kickoff time. However, since the game has been moved to Tuesday, Sept. 7 — a school night — the game will kickoff 30 minutes earlier at 6:30 p.m. The location change saves the Panthers travel time and expense, as well as enjoying home field advantage for an extra game.
The schedule change also means that the Panthers will play two football games in the span of four days. After hosting Nelson on Tuesday night, Page County will try to weather the Storm of Staunton on Friday night in another non-district matchup that kicks off at 7 p.m.
Friday night’s game will be Senior Night, as well as a special tribute to the Page Youth Football League (PYFL). Every PYFL player or cheerleader — in uniform — will be admitted free to the game with an adult admission.
A special ceremony will be held during Homecoming on Friday, Sept. 24, for the unveiling of Buddy Comer Stadium at Panther Field.
