Elkins, TV set for no Friday tilts
Tiger stay 11th, Bulldogs jump to ninth in latest playoff ratings
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to bring the unknown in regards to high school football schedules.
Randolph County was orange in Saturday’s DHHR color-coded map, meaning no sporting events.
Elkins was scheduled to face No. 2 Frankfort on Saturday at Buckhannon-Upshur High School and Tygarts Valley was set to entertain Trinity Christian.
With those two games being canceled and no new opponents scheduled for a possible rare Sunday contest as of Tuesday, both teams will now only have two regular-season games remaining.
The Tigers (4-2) remained 11th in the SSAC Class AA ratings, which were released on Tuesday, while the Bulldogs (6-1) moved up two spots to ninth in single-A.
The Big 10 Conference has five teams — including Elkins — among the top 16 in Class AA in North Marion (sixth), Fairmont Senior (eighth), Robert C. Byrd (ninth) and Lincoln (14th).
Bridgeport is second in Class AAA and will host No. 8 Spring Valley on Friday night in a game announced on Monday.
Sissonville (2-0) is tops in double-A.
Midland Trail (3-0) is No. 1 in Class A, while Petersburg is seventh, East Hardy eighth and Pendleton County 12th.
East Hardy — in a scheduling change — will visit Tucker County on Friday night.
South Charleston (2-0) is the top team in Class AAA.
The top 16 teams in each class qualify for the playoffs, which are set to get underway on Nov. 13.
