One might be left to wonder if a high school football game between the Tagwi Warriors and CCVS Raiders will actually hit the gridirion this season. Originally scheduled for later this month, the contest was moved forward to yesterday, Oct. 2, but there were no referees available, so the game couldn't go on.
The latest update has it being played Friday, Oct. 5, at noon, at Tagwi SS.
Speaking of changes, the Glengarry Gaels game scheduled for Friday has been postponed to a date yet to be determined.
