Anclote’s first-round playoff game in Gainesville moved to Thursday, Nov. 15

Looks like just another obstacle in the road for Anclote to get around.
Sharks coach Matt Wicks announced Thursday that the team’s first-ever playoff game had been moved to Nov. 15 at 7:30 p.m. because of “shared-field conflict.” The game should have been played Nov. 16, similar to all other first-round playoff games, including when fellow Class 5A-District 6 team Pasco hosts Citra North Marion.
However, the Gainesville-area high schools share Veterans Memorial Stadium for outdoor athletic events, such as football and soccer games.
FHSAA decided to move Anclote’s game to a day earlier because Alachula Gainesville hosts Brooksville Hernando in a Class 6A first-round playoff game in the same stadium.
Anclote, a program just in its fourth season, started the season 0-4, but roared back to forced a three-way tiebreaker playoff game with Fivay and Anclote, then shutout both the latter to make the team’s first playoff berth.
