HARDIN – COVID-19 has ended Norborne Hardin-Central's 8-man football season.
Aggies coach Kirk Thacker stated by text message Thursday night that NHC would have to forfeit tonight's District 2 Tournament semifinal with North Shelby at Shelbyville because of the pandemic. The Missouri State High School Activities Association website confirmed the website.
Thacker said Friday by phone an outbreak of cases in the Hardin-Central C-2 School District had prompted the forfeit. No football players had tested positive, he said.
NHC finished 6-4.
