Union/A-C Valley at Bucktail Football Game Thursday Canceled

RIMERBSURG, Pa. Tthe Union/A-C Valley at Bucktail football game Thursday, Sept. 9, has been canceled due to COVID-19 concerns with the Union/A-C Valley program.

“Out of an abundance of caution, the Union/ACV football program will cancel their (junior high game) this week with Karns City and their varsity game at Bucktail,” an e-mail from Union athletic director Scott Kindel said.

The cancelation comes a day after A-C Valley High School announced it was going to remote learning for at least Tuesday, Sept. 7, and Wednesday, Sept. 8, due to COVID outbreaks in both the district’s elementary school and high school. As of Monday, Sept. 6, over 15 people between the two schools had tested positive for COVID-19 and over 60 students between the two schools had been quarantined.

It is the second game this week to be canceled because of COVID-19 concerns joining the Wilmington at Oil City game.
