Hello 7th & 8th Grade DJFL Players & Parents,


7th Grade: Unfortunately, Ashland has forfeited their game against us scheduled for tomorrow. That being said, we worked diligently to find a replacement game. The 7th grade will now play Esko, next Tuesday at 4:30pm at Irving. We know this will be a tight turn-around after school, so please work with your coaches to find rides from school or home if needed. With it getting darker so early, we must have an earlier start.


8th Gade: You game is still being played as scheduled tomorrow. Next Tuesday however, the 8th Grade team will have an informal practice/scrimmage vs. Esko while the 7th grade plays their game. 8th Graders should try to arrive to Irving by 4:30, or as soon as possible on Tuesday.


Here are the details for this game:


Tuesday, October 3rd:

7th Grade – Irving

Esko Vs. Denfeld

Arrive to Irving between 3:45-4:00

Game Kick-Off: 4:30pm


We apologize for any inconvenience. However, a big thank you to Esko for picking up this game!
