Local football schedules changing due to Eta

With the imminent approach of Hurricane Eta, three area high school football teams are making changes to their playoff schedules this week.

Eastside High School has moved its game with Dunnellon to Saturday. They released the following statement today:

 “Eastside vs. Dunnellon will kickoff at 12pm on Saturday 11/14/20 at Citizens field. All online tickets sold will automatically roll over to the new date and time. Spectators will be allowed in the gate 30 minutes prior to kickoff. Thank you all for your flexibility so we can get this game played.”
