CHS Football Replaces Central With Scottsbluff Aug. 28

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.
