Richfield Cancels Friday's Game


By Jason Carter

Richfield, ID ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) 1 day after Glenns Ferry cancelled their game with Wendell, Richfield is following suit by cancelling this Friday's game against Dietrich. But, this time it's not for disciplinary action, but rather health reasons.

Richfield Superintendent Mike Smith told KMVT, "We are disappointed in the cancellation, but we don't really have an ethical choice."

Due to injuries and the flu, the Tigers are down to 8 total plays (4 of whom are freshman), so the school didn't want to risk the health of the rest of their players.

The school is hopeful they will have enough players to play their final two games of the year.
