ROUNDUP

Northwestern’s game at Glades Central canceled

 

From Miami Herald Staff, Wires

Miami Northwestern’s game at Belle Glade Glades Central was canceled Friday because of “unrest in the community,” officials announced.

The decision to cancel the game stems from a shooting near Glades Central that forced the school to go on lockdown during an activity Thursday night, a source told the Palm Beach Post.

“Due to unrest in the community, school police, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office and the area’s superintendent have canceled tonight’s game against Northwestern,” Glades Central co-athletic director Dennis Knabb said.

According to Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office spokesman Teri Barbera, there was a shooting around 7 p.m., Thursday in the 2000 block of S. Main Street, which is less than a mile from the high school.

Barbera said the decision to forfeit the game was made by the school district, not PBSO.

“We were not involved in the decision process,” she said.

Through its Twitter account, Northwestern’s football team tweeted, “Tonight’s game vs Glades Central in Belle Glade has been canceled. Glades Central will forfeit the game due to Gang Violence in the area.”

According to Knabb, the plan is for Glades Central to receive a forfeit loss as a result of the cancellation, but details are still being finalized. The Raiders entered the week with a 3-4 record.
