WESTERLY — Westerly High will not open its football season on Saturday after all.

The Bulldogs were scheduled to travel to Providence to take on Moses Brown at 1 p.m.

But an email from Westerly High athletic director Jamey Vetelino to parents on Friday said the game was off after Moses Brown said it could not play the game due to a positive test within its team.

Westerly was originally scheduled to play at Middletown on Saturday, but that game was also canceled as the Islanders are dealing with COVID-19 issues.

Westerly's first game of the season was scheduled for March 27 at Pilgrim, but it was canceled due to a positive virus tests for the Bulldogs.

Westerly returned to the practice field on Wednesday for the first time since March 19. Westerly High was on distance learning this week after a number of positive tests in the school community.

Westerly is now scheduled to host Rogers on Friday at 7 p.m.
