PAL football games cancelled

 

The Peninsula Athletic League has cancelled this weekend's football games due to the unhealthy air as the result of the Northern California fires.

With the ending of the Central Coast Section regular season taking place a week before the state playoffs begin, there is a possibility that this week's games -- Week 7 of the regular season -- get moved to Week 11, the week after the PAL's traditional rivalry games.

Games involving local teams that were scheduled to be played this weekend include Aragon at Menlo-Atherton, Menlo School at Sequoia, South San Francisco at Woodside and Half Moon Bay at Sacred Heart Prep.

The CCS released this statement:

After an emergency meeting by the CCS Executive Committee it has been determined that the CCS Football Championship series will begin one week later than originally scheduled.

This allows for games that had to be cancelled this week to be rescheduled at a later date as a result of air quality in some areas of the Section.

Therefore, the end date in the sport of football will be extended by one calendar week from November 4, 2017 to November 11, 2017.

The Central Coast Section Football playoffs will take place as follows:

• Friday, November 17 and Saturday, November 18: Quarterfinals

• Friday, November 24 and Saturday, November 25: Semifinals

• Friday, December 1 and Saturday, December 2: Finals
