DUXBURY, Mass.(WBZ NewsRadio) — Duxbury High School's controversial return to the football field will not take place Friday night, against longtime rival Marshfield.
Marshfield backed out because of Covid-19 health and safety protocols.
The Duxbury program has not taken the field since March 19, after players and coaches were overheard using anti-Semitic language to call out their plays on the field.
The calls were overheard during the team's March 12 game against Plymouth North High School.
Duxbury's Head Coach Dave Maimarom has since been fired from his coaching job and Duxbury officials said he is on paid administrative leave from his job as a special education teacher at Duxbury High School.
Since the incident, players have undergone sensitivity training. Friday night's game was the last scheduled game of the season for Duxbury.
