FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KXDF) The North Pole Patriots Week 2 match-up against the Wasilla Warriors has been moved to Saturday. Due to air conditions in Wasilla, the teams are moving their game up to the Interior.

The smoke caused by numerous fires in the state have forced the cancellation of many games. Here are the Friday football games that are either cancelled or postponed to a later date.

The Mat-Su and Anchorage school districts have cancelled outdoor activities to the air quality. West Valley will spend their time with their JV program having an official game against the Monroe Catholic Rams at 4:30 P.M. today. Their varsity team will have a scrimmage at 6:30 P.M.

Lathrop’s game against the West Anchorage Eagles is unaffected by the changes, as they will still face each other tomorrow night at 7:30 P.M. in Fairbanks.
