Texas - The Friona football team
has been forced to forfeit a win by the UIL. In the season-opening game
against Abernathy Coach Bob Ferguson inadvertently played an ineligible
player. The player, who Ferguson will not name, is a transfer student
and his paper work had not been cleared by the District 2-2A executive
committee. The 9-0 win over Abernathy is
the only game the player in question participated in, so the Chieftains wins
over Morton and Bovina stay intact. Ferguson expects the
player to be cleared for Friona’s game on Friday.
