St. Pius on Tuesday canceled its Saturday football game with Blessed Trinity, citing a positive test within the football program and potential exposure to other players, the school announced on its Facebook page.

The cancellation is the third this season for Blessed Trinity, the first for St. Pius.

Blessed Trinity school canceled its games with Forsyth Central and Marist the past two weeks because of a positive coronavirus test result among players on the Blessed Trinity team earlier this month.

The Blessed Trinity-St. Pius game was moved to Saturday to give Blessed Trinity an extra day to comply with the GHSA’s reacclimation rules for players coming out of quarantine.

Blessed Trinity, ranked No. 2 in Class 5A, is looking for a replacement opponent.

St. Pius, ranked No. 10, played and won its only scheduled game, Sept. 4 against Flowery Branch.
