The regular season football finale between Cathedral City and Desert Mirage High Schools on Friday. Nov. 1 will be moved to Coachella Valley High.

The game was moved due to poor air quality at Desert Mirage High, which was not far from the Thermal dump fire that closed schools in the area for more than a week late last month.

The Rams (0-9) forfeited last week’s game versus Yucca Valley because the team had not practiced in a week due to the poor air quality, which was not ideal for players, coaches and spectators. Schools in the area were re-opened last week, though the air quality has not improved enough for Desert Mirage High to host a football game.

So, instead, the game will move 7.4 miles to the north. Coachella Valley High is playing on the road at Banning.

Cathedral City (2-7) High’s quarterback, Oshea Wallace, and three of his teammates were unable to play at Coachella valley High on Oct. 4 due to suspensions for leaving the sideline to break up an on-field scuffle the week prior versus Desert Hot Springs. In their absence, the Lions lost, 42-0, at Coachella Valley

Now they have a chance to redeem themselves on that same field.
