With Hurricane Florence slowly approaching North Carolina, local football teams are preparing for the weather by moving up their football games. Elkin High School and Forbush High School are the only two local teams playing this week, as East Wilkes and Starmount both have a bye.
As of Tuesday afternoon, the Elkin Buckin’ Elks have changed their JV and Varsity games again.
Elkin will now host South Stokes on Wednesday night with kick-off set for 7:30 p.m. in Elkin. On Thursday, the JV team will travel to South Stokes and kick-off is set for 7:00 p.m.
There has been no change for the Forbush Falcons as JV will play Wednesday at home and Varsity will still play Thursday at North Wilkes.
