Just a day before kickoff of the annual rivalry game between the Badger and Waterford football teams, the matchup has been called off.
The Friday night game between the Wolverines and Badgers was postponed this morning, according to Southern Lakes Conference commissioner Pat Miles, although no date for a make-up game has been provided yet.
According to Waterford administration, it was their decision to cancel the contest, which was originally set to be played in Waterford at 7 P.M. on Friday.
"We cancelled the game," Waterford athletic director Jill Stobber said. "It's not having enough athletes to compete in the contest."
Stobber said that she could not say whether the lack of athletes was due to the coronavirus or other factors.
The next game on Badger's schedule will be a home matchup against Wilmot on Oct. 23 at 7 P.M.
