MEDFORD—The Delta fire is impacting sporting events in southern Oregon and week two of the high school football season is in jeopardy.
Crater has officially been moved north to Willamette for a 7 p.m. kickoff against the Wolverines.
North Valley will also now be on the road against Elmira, though head coach Neil DeForrest said if air quality improves in the morning, the game may be moved back.
Final decisions loom for North Medford (NewsWatch 12’s Game of the Week), Cascade Christian and Mazama.
Medford district athletic director Amy Tiger expects an update on the Black Tornado’s matchup against Jefferson, Portland on Thursday night.
The Challengers and Vikings meanwhile will wait until noon on Friday for an official verdict. Alternate sites and Saturday games are on the table for both schools.
This story will be updated.
