Geibel forfeits Week 2 game

In the wake of an 81-0 loss to Frazier, Geibel's football team has elected to forfeit its scheduled Week 2 contest at Beth-Center.

“Right now, we would only have 12 kids,” said Geibel athletic director Shawn Holup, noting that PIAA rules require teams to dress at least 13 players for varsity football.

Holup said that of the 16 players on Geibel's roster, several were injured in Friday's Tri-County South Conference loss, and one player is on vacation. Last year, Geibel was forced to forfeit its first two games of the season, but managed to come back and play out the rest of its schedule. Geibel again is in a week-to-week situation. The Gators' next scheduled game is at Vincentian on Sept. 13.
