Blytheville-Gosnell game cancelled
The highly-anticipated Blytheville-Gosnell high school football game was cancelled by Blytheville Friday night because of COVID-19 related reasons.
The game would have been the first ever regular season game between the two schools whose campuses are just five miles apart. It was also a 4A-3 conference game.
Tickets and vouchers for the game were sold out/handed out quickly.
Fans circled the game when the schedule came out. Because it was a COVID-19 cancellation, the game is a no contest.
Blytheville is scheduled to play at Trumann Friday night, while the Pirates are slated to host Rivercrest.
