NJ High School Football Team Forfeits Game

Posted: Updated:
KEARNY, N.J. -

A high school football team in Hudson County, N.J., decided to forfeit a game against one of the state's top teams as school officials feared for the players' safety.

Kearny High School was supposed to play Saint Peter's Prep last Friday. But, at the last minute, Kearny High School forfeited the game.

The school had no comment when asked why.

In prior reports, at least one school official pointed to player safety concerns because of the big difference in skill level between the two teams.

Kearny's football record this year is at 0-2. They lost their first two games by a combined score of 90-6.

Compare that to the football team at Saint Peter's prep. They started their season 2-0, scoring 113 points in their two victories.
