Oops! Gators game canceled

Island Coast High School's football game against Riverdale was cancelled a second time Saturday. The game may not be made up,

After lightning forced postponement Friday night, the game at Riverdale's Karl Engel Field was rescheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday. However, officials were not rescheduled for Saturday. After calls to find available officials were unsuccessful on a busy day for Pop Warner youth football, the game was cancelled.

Those fans who returned Saturday morning were offered refunds. A Riverdale official said Saturday the game would not be made up Monday.

The two teams have different bye weeks, so the non-district contest may not be rescheduled.

Riverdale has an open date on Sept. 27, when Island Coast has a District 5A-14 game against Mariner. When the Gators' open date rolls around on Nov. 8, Riverdale is playing a rivalry game with Lehigh.

The Gators have a home game next Friday against South Fort Myers while Riverdale will travel to Dunbar.
