Pickford Cancels Football Game with Rapid River

Following two positive COVID-19 cases within the Pickford Public Schools system, Pickford has canceled its varsity football against Rapid River on Friday.

The top-ranked team in the latest Associated Press 8-Player state poll, Pickford (4-0) was scheduled to travel to Rapid River.

Pickford Public Schools closed all schools Tuesday and canceled all school-related activities. The district plans to resume face-to-face instruction on Monday, Oct. 19.

If Rapid River cannot find a new opponent, it will receive a forfeit win, snapping Pickford’s win streak at 14 games. A forfeit win would also force a tie atop the Great Lakes 8-Man Conference East Standings.
