Week 6 prep football update: Bluffton-Wando on for Wednesday; Hilton Head, Beaufort games canceled

There will be football Wednesday night.

Wando, with Charleston County back in school Wednesday, will travel to play Bluffton at 6:30 p.m. in Bluffton.

With a scheduled off day on Friday, the Bobcats don’t have to worry about spacing their games out by two days.

Beaufort and Jasper county high schools were originally forced to reschedule their football games several times after rain and flooding forced most Week 6 games to be postponed.

In other developments:

• Region 8-AAA decided to cancel the postponed Week 6 games and continue on with the season from this point. Hilton Head Island’s home game with Hanahan and Beaufort’s game with Berkeley will not be made up.

Beaufort will host Stall as scheduled on Friday at 7:30 p.m. Hilton Head Island will play at Berkeley “sometime between Saturday and Monday,” according to Seahawks athletics director Joe Monmonier.

Monmonier said the region ADs would decide Wednesday how to handle tiebreakers since every team will not play every other team, and that’s a key to most tiebreakers.

“Everything is on hold,” Monmonier said. “The only thing I will tell you is we are not playing last week’s games. We are moving forward with the schedule.”

• Beaufort County’s Class 2-A teams are handling it differently. The 2-A class has an extra week that 3-A doesn’t. As a result, Battery Creek and Whale Branch will play their Week 6 games Friday.

Battery Creek will play at Garrett at 7:30 p.m., and Whale Branch will play at Bishop England at 7:30 p.m.

Battery Creek’s Week 7 home game against Bishop England and Whale Branch’s home game with North Charleston will be played Nov. 6.

• Beaufort Academy’s SCISAA 8-man football game at Charleston Collegiate has been rescheduled for 6 p.m. Oct. 19.

The game, originally scheduled for last Friday, had been rescheduled to 6 p.m. Tuesday.
