At least 6 planned football games are canceled with no plans of a makeup date, including the anticipated playoff rematch between DeLand and Jacksonville Mandarin.
Hurricane Dorian wiped out Week 3 of the prep football season in the Volusia/Flagler area.
Though schools in both Volusia and Flagler counties announced plans to reopen on Friday, all of that night's football games have been rescheduled, postponed or canceled.
It's the second straight week that the storm has affected the football schedule.
Realistically, any chance of a normal week of football ended over the weekend when the districts in both counties announced plans to close for most of the week, leaving teams no opportunity to hold even a single organized practice.
"I see no way to not be able to hold practice and play the state champions," DeLand football coach Steve Allen said of his team's plans to visit 8A title-holder Jacksonville Mandarin.
DeLand's game is one of at least six that has been canceled with no plans for a makeup date. Mainland (vs. Treasure Coast), New Smyrna Beach (vs. Bishop Kenny), Taylor (at St. Joseph Academy), Trinity Christian (at Cornerstone Charter) and University (at Nease) are also scrapping their respective contests.
Trinity Christian athletic director Buddy Shacklette said his team will instead host Jacksonville Christ's Church at 7 p.m. on Sept. 13, which was originally planned as a bye week. Mainland, which is down to eight games after last week's Freedom Bowl cancellation, remains interested in picking up an opponent for Oct. 11.
Local football action, however, could resume as early as Monday.
Pine Ridge and Halifax plan to play that night, Panthers coach Kenny Pickens said. Atlantic coach DJ Mayo added that he is seeking approval for the Sharks to host Seabreeze on Monday night.
Flagler Palm Coast and Warner Christian moved their Week 3 games into October. FPC will head to St. Augustine on Oct. 4 (7 p.m.), while Warner hosts Cocoa Beach on Oct. 7 (6 p.m.).
Matanzas athletic director Zach Rigney said the tentative plan is for the Pirates and Middleburg to reschedule for Week 4, likely either Sept. 12 or Sept. 13. Deltona, Spruce Creek and Father Lopez are hopeful to reschedule with their opponents — Winter Springs, Hialeah-Miami Lakes and Satellite, respectively — but details are yet to be finalized.
