SKS Football - Updates Oct 22

Thu October 22 2009 @ 12:22 PM

A couple of updates for the upcoming weekend: As I noted yesterday, the lights are out at Radnor High School's Loop Field, An e-mail from the township indicates that it will be next Tuesday at the earliest before they will be back in use. For tonight and Friday night, we will practice at South Devon Field from 5:15 to 6:45 PM.

Friday Nights Game with St. Thomas the Apostle will likely be moved to either Saturday or Sunday (Garnet Valley HS has moved its game with Radnor from Saturday afternoon to Friday night, and thus, has moved our game from their field). St. Thomas' coaches are working on an alternative location for either Friday night, Saturday, or Sunday (right now, based on the weather forecast, they are leaning towards moving the game to Sunday). If the game is moved to Sunday, we would reverse the order of the games and have the 5th & 6th kickoff at 1:00 PM and the 7th & 8th at approx. 2:15 PM.

If the games with St. Thomas are pushed to Sunday, then Sunday's currently scheduled 5th & 6th B game with St. Margaret's will be re-scheduled for later in the season.

A lot of moving parts right now, I know - As soon as I get confirmation on the location / day / time, I will send that information out immediately.

Any questions, let me know. Jim Pachioli

Any questions, let me know. Jim Pachioli
