As teams across the region attempt to make up for games lost to Hurricane Ian, there will be football on Tuesday night for the second week in a row.

Booker High and Bayshore High will compose a Class 2A-District 15 Suburban game on Tuesday at Balvanz Stadium.

This will be the second game in five days for both teams. And it’s going to be a busy week for both of them. The Bruins have a game scheduled for Friday at Mulberry High. The Tornadoes will play at Wiregrass Ranch at noon Saturday.

Last week, Southeast High visited Harllee Stadium to take on Palmetto High.

Booker Tornadoes (2-4, 0-1 in 2A-15S) at Bayshore Bruins (0-5, 0-2 in 2A-15S)

When or: 7:30 p.m., Friday, Balvanz Stadium, 5401 34th St., Bradenton

Story: Reservation 7-3

Last year: DNP

The lean: This is a Class 2A-District 15 Suburban set. … Booker lost his last two after splitting his first four to open the season. … The Tornadoes have lost all three road games. … On Friday at Arcadia, Booker held a 7-0 lead until the fourth quarter when DeSoto County scored 15 points to improve to 2-0 in the district. … Bayshore was shut out for the second time this season. … The Bruins were outscored 227-22. … This is the second match in five days for both teams.
