The Staunton River High School (SRHS) Golden Eagles football team was riding on back-to-back victories against Fort Defiance, 28-14, in their benefit game and in their week-one victory over William Campbell, 48-16.
The young Golden Eagles were looking to push that streak to three games against county rival Jefferson Forest, but due to their team being in quarantine and how the schedules for both teams lined up, the decision was made to ultimately cancel the anticipated contest.
