JACKSON, Wyo. — For the second time this fall a high school football game in Wyoming has been canceled due to COVID.

The game between the Powell Panthers and the Douglas Bearcats, scheduled for Friday, September 18, has been cancelled by mutual agreement between the two schools after positive cases of COVID were found amongst students at Douglas High School.

After first disclosed by high school sports website MaxPreps, Converse County School District later confirmed two students in its district have recently tested positive for the coronavirus. Douglas played Bell Fourche last week in South Dakota but it was not disclosed whether the cases stem from that road trip or whether the infected students are, in fact, on the football teams.

“We will not have football practice for all levels at Douglas High School for the next two days. Because our games have been canceled for this week, we have a couple of days to get some rest and monitor our health,” a statement from the athletics department read.

The cancellation marks the second time this fall season that a high school football was called off due to concerns over COVID. Two weeks ago, a Buffalo-Newcastle game was scrubbed after Newcastle players tested positive for COVID. That team had traveled to South Dakota the previous week to play Hot Springs.
