With wet weather forecast for this weekend, an area football squad has moved its game Friday night up a day.

North Myrtle Beach’s matchup with West Brunswick (N.C.) has been changed to Thursday night. St. James and Carolina Forest have also move their contest a day earlier, both kicking off at 7 p.m.

Aynor has also followed suit, shortly after 11 a.m. (Wednesday) announcing its game with Green Sea Floyds will be played Thursday at 7:30 p.m.

Georgetown’s trip to Andrews has also been moved up to Thursday night at 7 p.m. Another all-Georgetown County affair featuring Waccamaw and Carvers Bay was pushed up a day as well.

“Honestly, I was hoping we’d get to muddy it up a little bit,” said Waccamaw football coach Shane Fidler. “But when you’re told how something is going to be, that’s the way it is going to be.”

Loris initially planned to stick with hosting its game with South Columbus (N.C.) on Friday night. But after a further look at the forecast and the response of other area schools, it also will be playing on Thursday at 7:30 p.m.

Myrtle Beach’s game with West Florence was already set for Thursday night, being televised via WWMB CW-21.

The only local school expected to play this Friday is Conway, who will make the trip to Florence to take on Wilson. Kickoff will be at 7:30 p.m.

Here is how the schedule now shapes up for Week 3:

▪  Green Sea Floyds at Aynor (Thursday, 7:30 p.m.)

▪  West Florence at Myrtle Beach (Thursday, 7 p.m.)

▪  North Myrtle Beach at West Brunswick (Thursday, 7 p.m.)

▪  St. James at Carolina Forest (Thursday, 7 p.m.)

▪  Georgetown at Andrews (Thursday, 7 p.m.)

▪  Waccamaw at Carvers Bay (Thursday, 7 p.m.)

▪  South Columbus (NC) at Loris (Thursday, 7:30 p.m.)

▪  Conway at Wilson
