: : : : : : : : This scenario is factual. I wont name the schools.
: : : : : : : : On Tuesday, Coach of Team A is informed that his opponent for the upcoming Friday was double booked. Coach of Team A searches for replacement and thru email n texts, agrees with Coach of Team B to a game. ADs confirm n contract gets sent @ 5pm. Team A then goes and plays a game and unfortunately 3 of their 8 players get hurt. Coach of Team A contacts Coach of Team B at 8pm (3hrs after contract) to inform him that they will not be able to play on Friday. Team B now wants to claim a forfeit W. I'd like to know if this is right or likely to be upheld/approved or just a Bush league move on the part of Team B to get a cheap, unearned W?

: : : : : : : Unfortunate and sorry to hear that anyone was possibly injured however a Signed contract is a signed contract and the win loss box on that must be filled out to my knowledge. Im saying forfeit.

: : : : : : I think Coach of team B needs to have an understanding that 3 of 8 players got hurt....If he only has 8 players and leaving him with 5 i would be more incline to cancel...if it 3 of his top 8 of a 14 man roster i'd like to still play the game if i needed the game....i don't know if i'd force the forfeit but team b probably did a solid for team a in scheduling the game....hate to burn a bridge if you don't absolutely have to

: : : : : : Name the schools ....?

: : : : If its true we can just look on Friday to see who got a forfeit win since there will probably only be that 1.

: : : You should play the game with 5 players. 3 players getting hurt in one game is extremely unusual at best. Kinda of hard to believe and I do not!

: : You could also bring up some of your top JV guys to sub rotate. Unless this is a small school there should be JV guys who can contribute.

: 99.999999999999999 etc. of people could careless and those that do will forget very shortly.

So looks like it was Ganesha and Pioneer from looking at Maxpreps. Ganesha forfeited Fridays game, Ganesha played on Tuesday, and Ganesha had Colton on the schedule who was double booked. Pioneer coach is a 1st year head coach so looks like he is trying to get W's any way possible.
