Leetonia will play on Saturday

WELLSVILLE — Leetonia’s football team is getting some extra time to prepare for Wellsville.

The Bears and Tigers were originally scheduled to meet on Friday but the game has been moved to 7 p.m. Saturday at Nicholson Stadium to allow for more Leetonia players to emerge from quarantine.

COVID issues prevented Leetonia (1-4) from playing Columbiana last Friday.

Wellsville (3-4) is coming off a Saturday game with Valley Christian. The Tigers are 18th in Div. VII, Region 25 and will likely have a clear understanding of its playoff chances by game time on Saturday as most of the other teams in the running for the final playoff spots play on Friday night.
