BRIDGEPORT, W.Va (WDTV) - The clash of two Class AAA powerhouses will have to wait to be played, if at all.

No. 5 Bridgeport at No. 4 Martinsburg, originally scheduled for tonight at 7:30 p.m. has been postponed due to Berkeley County turning red on today’s DHHR color-coded map. The county began the week in gold but rising numbers in COVID-19 cases pushed Berkeley into red status this morning. Since last Friday, Berkeley County’s infection rate has increased from 35 percent to 53 percent.

There are multiple scenarios for the game to be played. If Berkeley County is orange or better at 10 a.m. tomorrow morning, the game will be played at 4 p.m. If the county doesn’t improve from its red status by the color-coded map release at 5 p.m., the game will not be played and Martinsburg will be forced to forfeit.
