MOUNT IDA – Coach Zack Wuichet has announced that the junior high football game at Foreman has been cancelled by Foreman officials.
Coach Wuichet stated that he was informed by Foreman officials that many of their junior high players will be in Little Rock at the state fair showing livestock Thursday. As a result they didn’t feel they had enough players to field a competitive team and decided to forfeit the game.
The forfeit gives the Junior Lions their sixth win of the season and moves their conference record to 5-0.
Mount Ida’s next game will be Thursday, October 24, at 7 p.m. at home against Dierks. A win over Dierks would clinch at least a shared conference title and wins over Dierks and Gurdon would give the Junior Lions the 7-2A title.
