A scheduling mix-up at Patrick Henry High School has left El Modena High School of Orange County without a game on Oct. 10, said Bill Backstrom, El Modena Coach.
Patrick Henry is scheduled to play Grossmont on Friday, Oct. 9, instead of honoring a previously scheduled game the next day with El Modena.
Backstrom said he signed an agreement last season with Walt Baranski, who was then Patrick Henry's coach, to play a two-game home-and-home series. Patrick Henry played at El Modena last season, losing 13-8.
Backstrom said no one from the school contacted him to either confirm or cancel the game.
However, Chris Miller, Patrick Henry's new coach, said Baranski told him he tried numerous times to confirm the game, but that nobody from El Modena returned his calls.
