Pittsburgh Sports Now has confirmed that Pittsburgh Central Catholic has forfeited their PIAA quarterfinal game against McDowell over COVID-19 concerns.

The two teams were scheduled to play Saturday afternoon at 1 PM at McDowell High School near Erie. Central Catholic advanced to PIAA playoffs the following their win over North Allegheny in the WPIAL 6A championship game.

PSN has learned that this forfeit is the result of positive COVID-19 cases in the high school and there no positive cases of anyone of the football team. The leaders at Central Catholic felt this was the right thing to do and the forfeit was done more out of precaution and wanting to do the right thing.

Central Catholic shutdown on Thursday after a third student test positive and there’s a chance the students could be going all online starting on Monday.

Despite the news today, this was a great season for the Central Catholic football team as they won a WPIAL championship for the 4th time in the past six seasons and their eight overall.
