SHELBY, N.C. (AP) — The football field at a Cleveland County high school will be off limits for at least another week after goats caused a mess Friday in a prank that raised sanitation concerns.

The Shelby Star reports (http://bit.ly/SjBQev ) that Wednesday's soccer game and Thursday's junior varsity football game have both been moved to Shelby High School.

Burns Principal Aaron Allen expects the football field to be ready by the end of next week, when it's possible the Bulldogs would host a home playoff game.

About a dozen goats were released in the stadium last week, forcing a football game against Rutherfordton-Spindale Central to be moved as a health precuation due to more than 100 recent E. coli cases linked to animals at the Cleveland County Fair.
