HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL: Charlotte, IMG Academy National have preseason games cancelled


Cardinal Mooney has to give up its home game vs. Berkeley Prep Sept. 6 because of stadium lights issue

Two fall Preseason Football Classics were cancelled and an area team was forced to move a regular season home game to the road before the regular season begins.

Because of a dispute with football officials in Lee County, Charlotte High’s game Friday night at Cape Coral Mariner was cancelled.

Also, a scheduling dispute forced the cancellation of the IMG Academy Blue (national team) at Lake City Columbia on Friday for its preseason classic.

Cardinal Mooney was forced to switch its scheduled Sept. 6 home game against Berkeley Prep to Tampa due to delays in permitting for new stadium lights. The Cougars’ field is getting a complete makeover. Cardinal Mooney’s first home game on its new turf field is 7 p.m. at Sept. 20 against Lakeland Victory Christian Academy.
