Harvey forces change in football schedules

 

LIVINGSTON -- The 2017 football schedule for District 22-5A has been changed to accommodate schools in the southeast that have not yet opened due to weather-related issues. Beginning Sept. 20, the Livingston Lions will play contests every six days over the next few weeks. The new plan allows games to take place later in the month, allowing those still dealing with fallout from Harvey to recover and begin a school schedule. The Sept. 15 district opener for the Lions at home versus Nederland has been moved to Wednesday, Sept. 20. A road game with Lumberton, originally scheduled for Sept. 22, will be Tuesday Sept. 26. Port Neches-Groves was to be Sept. 29 and will now move to Monday, Oct. 2. Also changed will be the Oct. 20 and Oct 27 games scheduled versus Vidor and Port Arthur Memorial, respectfully. Those two games will be switched, with Oct. 20 at Port Arthur Memorial and Oct. 27 hosting Vidor. Livingston Athletic Director Brian Broussard said the Thursday, Oct. 12 contest with Baytown Lee could also be moved to the following day. All games will remain at 7 p.m. just as they were scheduled to begin. Tennis and volleyball schedules will also be altered during this time. Those schedules will be released once they are finalized.
