The Week 3 schedule continued to shrink Thursday.

The River Bluff football team was the latest to have a game Friday cancelled due to COVID-19 cases. The Gators were scheduled to travel to Berkeley which called off the contest after reporting a case.

Hours later, Dreher High School found out its game with Mid-Carolina which was made earlier in the week would not take place due to COVID-19 cases at the Prosperity school. Dreher has already had three games cancelled this season and were previously scheduled to face Aiken this week before making a change.

Other Midlands teams also inactive due to cancelled games include Pelion, Batesburg-Leesville, North Central, Swansea, Lugoff-Elgin, Spring Valley and Wagener-Salley. The tentative Week 3 schedule includes the following games:
