WATERBORO, Maine - The Massabesic Mustangs at Sanford Spartans football game scheduled for Friday night in Sanford has been postponed until Saturday due to rumors of violence.
According to David Theoharides, Sanford School Superintendent, a "rumor" that a student was bringing a gun to the game was reported to the Massabesic High School Resource Police Officer. That report, according to Theoharides, prompted an investigation by the resource officer and the Massabesic administration. Theoharides said that while investigators found the rumor unsubstantiated, they did find a high level of trash talking on social media.
Massabesic High School, located in Waterboro, is one of the Sanford Spartans main rivals. Theoharides said that definitely contributed to this issue.
