With recent updates from the Ohio High School Athletic Association related to fall sports, the Mid Ohio Athletic Association (MOAC), which includes three Richland County high schools, has set a tentative, six game schedule for 2020.

Recent statements from Governor Mike DeWine suggest that football and other fall contact sports might be allowed. His comments also revealed that spectators may be limited to parents and close family members.

Should area high schools be given the green light, the first week of play would begin on Friday, August 28. Two MOAC games would include Richland County schools:

  • Clear Fork at Lucas
  • Ontario at Shelby

The remainder of the season would see the following matchups:

September 4

  • Lucas at Ontario
  • Shelby at Pleasant
  • River Valley at Clear Fork

September 11

  • Galion at Clear Fork
  • Marion Harding at Shelby
  • Ontario at River Valley

September 18

  • Shelby at Galion
  • Clear Fork at Ontario

September 25

  • Shelby at Lucas
  • Pleasant at Clear Fork
  • Ontario at Galion

October 2

  • Lucas at Galion
  • River Valley at Shelby
  • Clear Fork at Marion Harding

Some sort of playoffs would begin the following Friday, October 9, with seeding decided by a coaches vote.

Most Ohio urban school districts, and some rural districts, have cancelled the 2020 football season. On Friday, Michigan’s high school athletic association canceled fall football and moved play to next spring, according to this story in ClickOn Detroit.
