(WOIO) –

A local high school football game has been canceled.

The Elyria High School vs Strongsville High football game is canceled for tonight, Friday, September 16th.

The EHS JV game for Saturday, September 17th has also been canceled.

Elyria’s Communications Director tells 19 Action News about 30 football players were sent home from school Friday after displaying intestinal illness symptoms.

Given the numbers of sickened players missing, the school made the decision to cancel the game. They are working on a make-up date with Strongsville at this time.

The football players did take part in a team meal Thursday night, but it’s unknown if that is what sickened the players.
