Section 1 has postponed the Class A semifinals until Thursday and pushed the championship game to Monday.
The Sleepy Hollow-Brewster and Harrison-Somers semifinals were originally scheduled for Tuesday, but were pushed back a day on Sunday because of school cancellations. The section adjusted the schedule again today because of further school cancellations on Tuesday.
“The teams will have no practice today and tomorrow, so there’s no sense in us getting crazy,” Section 1 football chairman Chuck Scarpulla said. “They need to have at least one day of practice before the game.”
Because teams are required four nights of rest between games, the Class A championship game originally scheduled for Sunday has been postponed until Monday. It will likely be played late afternoon/early evening at Mahopac High School, but the time has yet to be finalized.
Scarpulla said the section will consider hosting all four of the other finals this Sunday at Mahopac, beginning in the morning. Currently, the Class AA, B and D finals are slated for Saturday at Mahopac.
Section 1 has also been in discussion with Section 9 to move the Class A and C state quarterfinals to Saturday, Nov. 10. Those games were originally scheduled for Friday, Nov. 9, at Mahopac.
Section 9 is currently scheduled to host the Section 1 Class B champion on Friday night (7 p.m.), Nov. 9, at Dietz Stadium in Kingston. Dietz will also play host to the Class D (3 p.m.) and AA (7 p.m.) on Saturday, Nov. 10.
