After meeting with members of the Toledo Public Schools security staff, City League commissioner Ed Scrutchins has announced that Saturday s scheduled 2 p.m. Scott at Woodward football game will be moved to Waite s Mollenkopf Stadium.
The move was made in light of last Saturday s riot in North Toledo adjacent to the Woodward campus.
I met with our security people and they felt better about moving the game, Scrutchins said. Some of the players parents had expressed some concerns about safety. So, after the hearing, we felt it would be a wise move, at least for this week.
Scrutchins said that no other City League athletic events have been impacted in the aftermath of the riot, but has not ruled out subsequent changes if further such incidents arise.
