With only two seniors among 22 players on the varsity and 10 players who are new to football this season, Renville County West administrators have decided to play one more game and then forfeit the remainder of the varsity schedule.


"We need to think about the kids," said RCW athletic director Dale Negen. "We've got a lot of kids new to the sport who are still learning. We got a couple of kids hurt last week against Canby and we just can't have that."
