Wellington replaces El Dorado with Ulysses on Oct. 9 in a football game to be played in Dodge City

Sumner Newscow report — The Wellington-El Dorado football game has been canceled for October 9.

Wellington will instead be playing Ulysses for week #6. It was just announced that game will be played in Dodge City at 7 p.m. Wellington Activities Director Luke Smith said more information to follow once details are lined out.

“Thank you to Dodge City and their staff for working with us and accomodating our game,” Smith said.

CORRECTION: In an earlier version of this article it was stated El Dorado had canceled its game against Pine Bluff this weekend. Well, that is true, except that one is in El Dorado, Ark. and it was quoted in the El Dorado News Times in Arkansas not Kansas. Yours truly got it mixed up with the now-defunct El Dorado Times that was indeed in El Dorado… Kansas.
