South Whidbey will forfeit its football game against Archbishop Murphy on Friday night

South Whidbey football is forfeiting its game against Archbishop Murphy on Friday night, due to the Wildcats’ “overwhelming physicality” and the Falcons’ small roster.

“With our low numbers, we just can’t match up with their overwhelming physicality,” Lagerstedt said. “I’m disappointed, but it’s the right thing to do.”

South Whidbey is 0-3 overall and have been outscored 109-22 this season. The Falcons’ roster is slim, with only 14 or 15 players suited up per game, Lagerstedt said.
