PACKWOOD, IA – The Pekin Panthers football team will return to the gridiron this week after having to cancel last Friday’s match-up versus Cardinal due to positive COVID-19 tests on the team. Pekin will play at Mediapolis on Saturday night at 7:00. The Saturday game was necessary in order for the Panthers to meet the required 14-day hiatus set forth by the Iowa High School Athletic Association.
This will be the District opener for Pekin in Class 1A District 6, while Mediapolis began their District schedule with a 41-6 win @ Van Buren County last Friday. Quinn Douglas will provide the radio play-by-play coverage Saturday evening on the Ottumwa Radio Group Sports Network on 101.5 KISS FM.
