HUDSON — High school football fans eagerly awaiting the start of the high school season will have to wait a little longer as the entire Class B football schedule has been pushed back one week.
The delay is for Class B only and does not affect the start of the Class C and D seasons at this point.
The original first week for Class B, March 19, will now be used for scrimmages, while the opening of the regular season will be March 26.
Hudson will play the same five teams it was originally slated to play, but the end of the season will now have Class B teams playing just one crossover game instead of two.
“Sounds like some of the programs were having eligibility issues,” Hudson coach John Davi said. “This gives us extra time to prepare. All the extra time to prepare and get our athletes in shape is welcomed for sure.”
The Bluehawks will open the regular season with two home games — March 26 vs Schalmont and April 2 vs. Holy Trinity. They play at Ravena on April 9, host Lansingburgh n April 16 and go to Cobleskill-Richmondville on April 23. They will wrap up the season with a crossover game at a site to be determined on April 30.
Hudson opened up practice for the Fall 2 season on Sunday.
