Nogales High School's season-opening football game against Sahuarita was canceled early Friday morning after two student-athletes tested positive for COVID-19.

In a report by Nogales International, Nogales principal Tim Colgate said the status of future football games will be determined soon. 

Nogales' cancellation of its football game marks the second team in Southern Arizona to have its scheduled affected by COVID-19. Salpointe Catholic postponed its contest against Sierra Vista to last Friday — initially scheduled for Oct. 9 — after one player tested positive for the coronavirus, which forced the team into a two-week quarantine. 

Nogales has five games remaining on its 2020 schedule: at Cienega (Nov. 6), at Tucson High (Nov. 13), vs. Rio Rico (Nov. 20), at Walden Grove (Dec. 4), vs. Douglas (Dec. 10).
