UPDATE: St. Marys to host Frontier in football on Friday
PHS will host Jefferson instead of George Washington this week
PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (WTAP) - 10/26/20 - Noon
St. Marys will host Frontier at 7:30 p.m. Friday as the Blue Devils try to notch their eighth win of the season.
The Class A Blue Devils improved to 7-1 following a 54-6 rout of South Harrison on Friday.
Frontier, which plays in Division VII in Ohio, posted a 4-2 record in the regular season before defeating Fairfield Christian Academy 54-13 in the opening round of the Region 27 playoffs.
The Cougars were eliminated from the playoffs a week later in a 48-14 loss to Shadyside.
After a change to their football schedule caused by the West Virginia Department of Education’s school-alert-system map, Williamstown High School has found a new opponent for this Friday night. They will hit the road to play Wheeling Central in Wheeling. Kick off is at 7 p.m.
It will be a familiar match-up to many longtime Yellowjackets fans. Williamstown and Wheeling Central have played each other in the class A state championship five times in the last 20 years.

ORIGINAL STORY: 10/24/20
This week’s edition of the West Virginia Department of Education’s school-alert-system map has caused more changes to local football schedules.
Parkersburg High School was supposed to play George Washington High School this week, but due to Kanawha County’s gold status, that game has been postponed. PHS has already found a new opponent, though. The Big Reds will now take the field at home against Jefferson High School. Kick off is at 7 p.m.
Williamstown High School was supposed to play Dodridge County High School this week, but Dodridge is also gold on this week’s map. The Yellowjackets are still looking for a new opponent.
Ohio County is green just like Wood County on the map, so Wheeling Park is still set to play Parkersburg South this Friday.
