They made it all the way to game day.

Unfortunately, Ecole Classique and St. Martin’s Episcopal will not make it to the playing field tonight for their scheduled District 9-1A contest at Tony Porter Field.

The Spartans had to cancel the game due to COVID-19 issues at the school, confirmed to CrescentCitySports.com by coach Maurice Gernhauser.

“What a year it has been,” Gernhauser said. “I’ve never seen anything like this in my 40 years of coaching.”

Ecole Classique has only been able to play one game this season, last week against Fisher, due to a lack of numbers and now COVID-19 issues. That game with the Gators was stopped late in the first half due to injuries and a lack of numbers for the Spartans.

As a result, the season, unfortunately, is over for Ecole Classique.

“We’re done,” Gernhauser said. “We have three players who must quarantine for two weeks and we were going to play with just 12 tonight.”

The Saints (2-3) started the season 2-0 but have lost their last three contests. St. Martin’s is slated to play its regular season finale, a district contest at West St. John next Friday night.
