One football season, two hurricanes: Week 7 game updates



East Lake coach Bob Hudson is beginning to think Mother Nature has it out for his team.

In his previous 13 years with the Eagles, Hudson had only one game canceled. This season he already has had two and two others were delayed because of the weather.

"I've never seen anything like it," Hudson said.

Inclement weather has not been a friend to high school football this year. Hurricane Hermine wreaked havoc on the Week 2 slate, with many schools canceling that week's matchups. Now Matthew has impacted the Week 7 schedule.

"It's tough, it's stressful, not just for the coaches but for the kids," Hudson said. "The players are disappointed because that's two games already taken away from them this season."

Here's what we know about this week's games:

Postponed or canceled (no makeup dates set)

Manatee at Palm Harbor University
