KENDALLVILLE, Ind. (WANE) – One of the most anticipated games on the Highlight Zone’s week two schedule is off the board as the NorthWood-East Noble game will not be played in Kendallville per East Noble’s recent decision to halt all extra curricular activities until September 1 due to high COVID-related numbers.
East Noble athletic director Nick David and football coach Luke Amstutz both confirmed the news to WANE-TV on Wednesday night.
East Noble football is ranked no. 6 this week in the state’s 4A poll per the Associated Press. The Knights are 1-0 after scoring 56 points in a road win last Friday night to open their 2021 campaign.
East Noble isn’t the only local school dealing with COVID-related issues. Manchester High School had to cancel their football game at Bluffton on Friday due to similar problems. However, Bluffton was able to find a replacement, recently adding Hamilton Heights in Manchester’s place. Kick is set for 7:30 p.m. this Friday at Bluffton.
