Columbus High announced today the Discoverers football team will now be hosting Scottsbluff in its season opener. The game on Friday, August 28th will have a 6 p.m. kickoff at Memorial Stadium in Pawnee Park.
CHS was originally set to entertain Omaha Central that night at 7 p.m. However, Central’s trip here was scrapped after last Friday’s decision by Omaha Public Schools to suspend fall sports through October 16th while the district is in remote learning.
Play-by-play of the Discoverers’ season opener against the Bearcats will be aired on KLIR 101.
Columbus High has not yet announced a replacement for OPS member Omaha Northwest on October 9th. A report in the Lincoln Journal Star said there’s “a strong possibility” that fellow Heartland Athletic Conference member Lincoln Pius X could visit Columbus on that date.
