EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – Friday night’s Montwood-Eastwood football game scheduled to be played at Trooper Stadium has been postponed, officials at Socorro Independent School District confirmed to KTSM 9 Sports on Sunday. The game has been rescheduled to Dec. 4.
The postponement marks the 15th football game in El Paso to be postponed or canceled due to COVID-19.
Eastwood had their Week 2 game against Pebble Hills postponed and practiced just once ahead of their Week 3 win over Franklin this past Friday night. Meanwhile, Montwood has seen postponements in back-to-back weeks. The Rams’ Week 3 game against Coronado was postponed due to the virus.
District 1-6A has built-in two open weeks to handle COVID postponements, but with the majority of schools already seeing multiple postponed games, the prospect of playing a full seven-game district schedule is becoming more and more of a challenge.
