United forfeits a second football game

The 2019 football season at United High School hasn’t gone as expected.
A small roster — the team started with only 18 players — and injuries have forced United to forfeit a game for the second time this season.
The Lions forfeited to Ligonier Valley on Sept. 7, and now they can’t field a team Friday at home against Homer-Center.
United athletic director Cullen Stokes said regrettably, due to unforeseen circumstances, Friday’s game against Homer-Center has been cancelled.
Even though there is no game, United still plans to celebrate homecoming at the Thomas J. Madill Football Field starting at 7 p.m.
The marching band will entertain during the crowning festivities and will perform their halftime show following the homecoming ceremony. The homecoming dance is still on schedule at 6 p.m. Saturday in the high school gymnasium.
