Shooting threat delays high school football game
TEANECK (WABC) -- One day after a "credible shooting threat" forced the postponement of their game, two northern New Jersey high school football teams finally squared off on the gridiron.
The game between Northern Valley Regional High School and Teaneck was scheduled for 7 p.m. Saturday in Teaneck. But it was called off 15 minutes before the opening kickoff and rescheduled for 1 p.m. Sunday, and Northern Valley Regional came away with a 34-14 victory.
Teaneck police said they are still working to determine who made the threat and why it happened. Extra police officers were on duty at the school on Sunday, but no problems were reported during the game.
Details on the threat and its target have not been released, but Teaneck athletic director Todd Sinclair called it "credible."
