Nine Southern Nevada high school football games have been canceled for this week — seven scheduled for Friday and two for Saturday.

The game between Coronado and Basic was the latest to be canceled. No reason was given for the cancellation, but games have been called off in the season’s first two weeks because of COVID concerns, brush fires and a shortage of eligible players.

Friday’s other canceled games are:

—Bishop Manogue at Bishop Gorman;

— Desert Oasis at Del Sol;

— Foothill at Desert Pines;

— Pahrump Valley at Rancho;

— Needles vs. Battle Mountain (at Beatty);

— And Indian Springs at Sandy Valley.

Saturday’s cancellations are:

— Spring Mountain vs. Virginia City (at Tonopah);

— And Beaver Dam at Fredonia (Arizona).
