Canes, Titans game this Friday has been canceled
One of the most highly anticipated games in the state scheduled for this Friday at Weinman Stadium has been postponed and the game could be canceled entirely. Cartersville High School athletic director Darrell Demastus said in a tweet Wednesday the decision was made "due to the number of students quarantined for COVID-19."
Canes fans unfortunately, the Hurricanes football game scheduled for Friday, Oct. 30, is cancelled due to the number of students quarantined for COVID-19. The highest priority is the safety of our players and students. We will announce details of a make-up game at a later date — Darrell Demastus (@ddemastus) October 28, 2020
Blessed Trinity (3-0, 1-0) is currently ranked No. 2 in Class AAAAA by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution while Cartersville (6-1, 2-0) in ranked No. 4. According to Demastus, the two schools are working to make up the game but the options for a rescheduling appear to be limited. Blessed Trinity has been impacted by COVID cancellations multiple times already including their region game with Woodland. That game has already been rescheduled for a shared open date — November 20. The Titans picked up their first region win last Friday over Calhoun.
Cartersville has region wins over Cass and Hiram.
The region could opt to call the Cartersville-Blessed Trinity game a no-contest and break any ties in the standings by a league vote, or the teams could reschedule the game in between two already scheduled contests.
Friday would have been the fourth meeting all-time between the two programs.
Cartersville defeated the Titans 24-23 in the second round of the state playoffs in 2012, but Blessed Trinity won in the second round in 2017, 21-17, and in the state title game in 2018, 23-9.
