Hurricane/Tropical Storm Hermine messed up this week’s schedule of game which caused postponements, cancellations and delays but most of the games were played over the course of the Labor Day weekend.
In the best matchup of the week, Grayson defeated McEachern 16-13. Grayson’s Will Van Pamelen booted a 20-yard field goal on the final play for the win.
