Rain Changes Football Schedule - Updated 2:45 p.m. Friday

The rainy weather that has been in the Washington area the past 24 hours - and figures to remain through the weekend - has already forced some changes in this weekend's football action. DCIAA games remain on as scheduled (for the most part) because most city schools play on artificial turf field.

The changes:

The Post's Game of the Week won't happen until next week. Gwynn Park will visit Douglass on Monday at 3 p.m. in a matchup of Prince George's undefeateds. Two other PG games scheduled for Saturday have been pushed back to Monday. Bowie will play at Eleanor Roosevelt at 3 p.m. as well, while High Point will host Laurel at 5.

Eastern's homecoming game against Spingarn has been moved up to 4 p.m. Friday. Meantime, the rest of the DCIAA schedule is unchanged.

Riverdale Baptist's game against Friendship Collegiate, which was initially moved up to Friday at 3:30 p.m. at Prince George's Sports Park, will now be played Monday at 3:30.

The Whitman-Gaithersburg game will be played Friday at 2:30 p.m. at Richard Montgomery, which has an artificial turf field and can withstand the rain. Afterwards, Richard Montgomery will then play its regularly-scheduled game against Paint Branch at 6:30.

The rest of Montgomery County's schedule will proceed as planned.

Five Anne Arundel County games scheduled for Thursday evening have been moved to Monday, all starting at 6:30 p.m. : No. 5 Arundel at South River, Broadneck at Chesapeake, Meade at Northeast, North County at Southern, and Old Mill at Glen Burnie. The Severna Park-Annapolis game was played Thursday night, with Annapolis winning 21-6.

No. 17 Urbana's non-conference game scheduled for Thursday night at Patterson Mill in Bel Air has been moved to Friday at 6 pm, and the game will now be played at North Harford High School in Pylesville.

Check back here throughout the day on Friday for any updates to the weekend's schedule.

Rain? In the old days (1991-1995) we would play in the GASP rain. Is this liberalism run amok?
