MCKENZIE, Tenn. – Bethel Senior Associate Athletic Director Brad Chappell announced Tuesday afternoon the Homecoming football game versus the University of Pikeville scheduled for Friday night has been postponed. The game has been rescheduled for March 26 at Wildcat Stadium. Kick-off is slated for 7 p.m. Homecoming will be celebrated March 22nd-March 26th.
Chappell released the following statement, “We are sorry to announce we are compelled to postpone our football game and Homecoming at this time. Due to the immense challenges of trying to pull off the game this weekend we have determined it would be in the best interest of all involved to move the game to March 26th at 7 pm. I know this even more disappointing with it being Homecoming week but there are just too many circumstances beyond our control to pull off these events and keep them safe for our team, fans, staff and the traveling team.”
The Wildcats have yet to play due to weather conditions and will now open their season February 26 at Thomas More College. Kick-off in Crestview Hills, Kentucky is at 5 p.m. CST.
