High School Football Game Forfeited When Officials Didn’t Show Up

Few things are more important to small town Texans than Friday night football and that’s why it was so terrible last night when a game had to be forfeited when officials did not show up to call it.

The game was supposed to take place in Riesel, Texas where the local team was celebrating senior night. The opposing team was from Itasca, which is more than an hour drive away. Both teams showed up to play, but the game could not happen, because the officials were nowhere to be found.

According to news reports, the hometown team Riesel requested officials for the game, but for some still known reason they just didn’t show up.
