The Duxbury High football program’s highly anticipated return to the field has been put on hold because of a positive COVID-19 test in the Marshfield program.
The varsity game, scheduled for 6 p.m. Friday at Duxbury, and the junior varsity game have been postponed.
Duxbury has been on pause for two weeks after the school began investigating players’ use of Jewish and Holocaust-related terms in a game March 12 at Plymouth North — prompting the firing of 16-year head coach Dave Maimaron.
The Dragons were set to resume play Friday night against Thanksgiving rival Marshfield at Chandler Field, but with the game postponed, Duxbury athletic director Thom Holdgate is looking for a potential opponent to fill the vacancy.
While Marshfield was the final opponent on Duxbury’s schedule for the shortened Fall II season, Holdgate said Duxbury will look to schedule at least one more game next weekend.
