KNOX, Pa. – Keystone’s football game at Conemaugh Valley slated for Saturday at 1 p.m. has been canceled due to a COVID-19 case at Keystone High School.

The cancelation was reported by the both Ferndale Twitter account – Ferndale co-ops with Conemaugh Valley – and the Conemaugh Valley Twitter account.  The game is also listed as canceled on the Keystone Athletic game’s calendar on the school’s website.

Keystone released a statement Thursday, Oct. 15, that in part said that if there was a confirmed case within an athletic team the entire athletic team would have to quarantine per Pennsylvania Department of Health guidelines. It was not specified in the release if the case was within a team nor was it specified if an athletic team was being quarantined and D9and10Sports.com cannot confirm that the football team has to quarantine.

The Panthers are 3-2 on the season following a 26-0 loss to Redbank Valley last week. Keystone had originally been scheduled to play Sheffield Friday night but that game was canceled when the Wolverines canceled their season following a season-opening 86-0 loss to Keystone. The Panthers then picked up Conemaugh Valley within the last couple of weeks.

Keystone was also scheduled to play at Union/A-C Valley Oct. 23, but that game was canceled because the Falcon Knights qualified for the District 9 Class 1A playoffs. It is unknown at this time if Keystone will elect to play games the final two weeks of the season – Oct. 30 and Nov. 6.

Editor’s note: This story has been updated to reflect that it is unknown if a sports team is currently quarantining.
