Tonight’s Oak Hall at Bishop Snyder (Jacksonville) football game has been moved from Thursday to Friday night at 7 p.m.

The Weeki Wachee at Williston game scheduled for Friday night has been canceled. However, the Red Devils were able to pick up another opponent on Thursday.

Williston (1-0), which defeated rival Chiefland, 44-7, last week, will now travel to Class 3M First Coast (Jacksonville) on Friday. Kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m.

On Tuesday, Union County football coach Andrew Thomas confirmed that his game at Columbia (Lake City) had been postponed. The two teams do not have a common open date so there is uncertainty about when or if the game will be played this season.

Union County (1-0) defeated Interlachen, 43-0, last Friday, while Columbia’s game was postponed on Friday night in Lake City and then completed on Saturday in Gainesville. The Tigers lost, 41-13, to drop to 0-1.

Over 10 games involving area teams were either postponed, rescheduled or canceled.

The Lake Weir (Ocala) at Bronson football game has been rescheduled for Monday, Sept. 11, at 7 p.m., while the Trenton at Dixie County (Cross City) game will now be played the following Monday, Sept. 18, at 7 p.m.

We will still have two football broadcasts on Friday as part of the “Stephenson’s Septic Tank Services Game of the Week.”

Due to the chance of rain on Friday night, we have decided not to broadcast the Hawthorne at Newberry football game. It is being locally televised so we were restricted to broadcast outside.

Instead, we have selected the Eastside at Keystone Heights football game. It will be broadcast on 106.9 FM “I am Country” beginning at 7 p.m. The kickoff is at 7:30 p.m.

Join myself (play-by-play), former Gator football player Hank Rone (Color), and Aiden Wacksman (Pregame/Halftime/Postgame) on local radio.

Eastside (1-0), which defeated Inlet Grove (Riviera Beach), 28-9, in last Friday’s season opener, won last year’s meeting in Gainesville. The game marks the debut of new Keystone Heights football coach Steve Reynolds.

Our Mainstreet audio broadcast is still Leon (Tallahassee) at Gainesville High.

Join Cam Parker (Play-by-play) and Ethan Eibe (Color) online at Mainstreet Daily News. Coverage begins at 6:45 p.m., followed by the kickoff at 7 p.m.

The visiting Class 4S Lions have already matched their win total of last year (1-9) with a season-opening 31-23 win against North Florida Christian (Tallahassee). Class 3S GHS, which has a new coach in alum Ian Scott, lost at Braden River (Bradenton), 34-20, last Friday.
