Sad. The LVSD board of directors better soon realize that this is going to happen more frequently as long as their team remains in the Heritage Conference.

How is this LV's fault? United had 16 players going into last night and still played Blairsville ... why not forfeit that game too?

I realize kids have other things to fill their time nowadays, but it's incredible how a team coming off a district final appearance started this year with less than 20 players. You'd think interest would be UP after a year like United had last year.

I'm sure the two injuries last night including one to the QB, didn't help matters.

I'm sure taking away Uniteds best player has nothing to do with it either.  I dont blame kevin. Go play Ligonier and Roger puts up 80 and physically beats you down. This may allow them to finish the rest of the season. Maybe not.

No one said it was LV's fault. The fact is that Ligonier is going to see more and more of this as long as they remain in the Heritage. It was Saltsburg last year, United this year. Who will it be next year?

Because United doesn't want to give LV the satisfaction of putting up 90. Like PSU disgracing themselves today by put up 79 on Idaho. PSU will get there's 6-6. 7-5 this year.

Disgracing? I mean if the 3rd string scoring is disgrace then, sure I suppose.
