New London, IA- The Tiger football season took a misstep last week when New London announced that their matchup against Central City had to be forfeited due to injuries depleting their already thin roster. To resume their season New London had to meet with staff members of the IHSAA and discuss how they planned on completing the season. The meeting was a success but still provided a caveat.
The Tiger football team will have three of their players return from injury to bring their total up to 15 kids on the roster, their highest total of the season. However, the low total caused New London to cancel the rest of the Junior Varsity season to provide the kids ample rest time and prevent the possibility of unwanted injury.
If New London must forfeit another game this season due to a lack of numbers, then the Tigers will have to forego the remainder of the season.
The Tigers will look for their first win of the season against a winless HLV team on the road this Friday, September 22nd, at 7 pm.
