Douglas football game tonight canceled
August 31, 2018
The Douglas High football game scheduled to be played at 7:30 p.m. today at Union Mine in El Dorado, Calif. was canceled.
Union Mine decided to cancel the game due to a student safety issue.
Douglas coach Ernie Monfiletto said an offer was made for Douglas to host the game either Friday or today, but in the end the game was canceled and won't be rescheduled.
Monfiletto said he was most disappointed for his players.
"That's terrible," said Monfiletto about the players not receiving the chance to play. "Those seniors get one less chance to compete as seniors."
"Heartbreaking for those kids — all of those kids," added Monfiletto about his entire team. "Upsetting those kids don't get the chance to play."
