The weather is having its first impact on the 2022 high school football season.
This week, eight of the nine scheduled games involving Cabarrus County football teams have been moved up a day, from Friday night to Thursday night. The reason is Hurricane Ian, which was strengthening to a Category 4 storm on Tuesday and had North Carolina as part of its forecast track this weekend.
The only exception among Cabarrus County teams is the Cox Mill at A.L. Brown game, which is expected to be played Monday at 6:30 p.m., sources told the Independent Tribune. The Chargers are the IT’s Nos. 2 and 4 teams, respectively.
Several other sports have advanced their schedules this week because of the possible effects of Hurricane Ian.
Here is Thursday’s football schedule:
