The varsity football game between Joliet Central and Oswego scheduled for Friday at Ken Pickerill Stadium has been canceled due to a COVID situation at Joliet Central, Oswego athletic director Darren Howard confirmed on Thursday morning.
Oswego will take a forfeit win, moving the Panthers’ record to 1-2 on the season. It is the second football game in the Kendall County area to be canceled this week. The Plano-Sandwich ‘War on Rt. 34′ game was canceled due to a COVID issue at Sandwich.
Oswego football coach Brian Cooney said that Oswego contacted some schools for a replacement game, but “no one was interested.”
The Oswego-Joliet Central sophomores will still play at 5 p.m. Friday. The youth tackle and cheer will move up and take part in the sophomore game. There will be no admission charged for this game and concessions will be very limited.
