Daniel/Pickens varsity football game moved back one week

Pickens – With low country football games being pushed back because of the effects of Hurricane Matthew, some upstate games are being pushed back as well to conform to new playoffs dates.

D.W. Daniel Head Coach Jeff Fruster confirmed on Wednesday that the final game of the year which will see the Lions traveling to Pickens to face the Blue Flame in which a 4A playoffs spot would possibly be on the line has been pushed back a week.

The game scheduled for October 28 will now be played on November 4 at Pickens Stadium, Fruster posted on SDPC’s Schoology app.

Fruster said that the Junior Varsity contest between the county rivals will be played as scheduled on October 27 at Daniel High School immediately following the Edwards Middle School game.
