The Billingsley Bears football team has cancelled its football game against Isabella on Sept. 25.

Although it is game week, Billingsley informed its fans of the decision with a post on its designated athletics Facebook page on Sept. 21.

The cancellation was COVID-19 related, however, the Bears have not cancelled the remainder of the season.

According to the Facebook post, the school is suspending football activities for a short time and will be looking to reschedule any games missed if common dates can be found with the opponents.

The Bears cancellation also meant that Isabella would be without a contest to play this week.

However, the Mustangs have quickly found a replacement and will now travel to take on Greenville beginning at 7 p.m. on Sept. 25.

The game between Billingsley and Isabella was a non-region game.
