Riverside Academy’s District 9-2A opener at South Plaquemines, scheduled for 7 p.m. Friday, has been cancelled because of the approach of Tropical Storm Nate.

The Rebels (1-3) were headed into the district encounter coming off a 42-21 loss to De La Salle. Riverside went into the De La Salle contest after an open date on September 22.

Including an open date during Week 10 of the regular season, the Rebels will have only seven playing dates this year.

Riverside opened the season with a 54-0 domination of Southern Lab. The Rebels dropped their next three games, falling to Barbe 45-28 and to Rummel 38-34 before losing to De La Salle.

South Plaquemines (3-2) opened the season with an 8-2 win over Belle Chasse. After being blanked 34-0 by West St. John, the Hurricanes defeated Riverdale 48-16 and Cohen 32-12 before falling 26-14 to Bogalusa last week.

Riverside is slated to return to district action October 13 at Newman while South Plaquemines plays at Carver.
