Lincoln forced to forfeit
The attempts by Lincoln County to make up its football game with Pulaski County that was called off tonight have come to an unfortunate end, as the Advocate’s Hal Morris reports that the KHSAA has informed Lincoln that it will have to forfeit the game.
Lincoln was trying to find a place to put the game, which was called off after the county’s schools were closed Wednesday through Friday and all related extracurricular activities were called off through Sunday due to illness. However, Pulaski County wasn’t willing to reschedule the game beyond this week, and the KHSAA effectively said that Lincoln would have to forfeit because of the impasse.
The Patriots fall to 1-5 with the loss, which is recorded with a 2-0 score. And they are effectively eliminated from the playoffs, because a KHSAA by-law states that teams must play all the other teams in their district to be eligible for the postseason.
