Bloomington Christian to be back in play

After forfeiting last Friday’s game to Anza Hamilton due to a rash of injuries, Bloomington Christian will be able to host its Homecoming game Friday against Fairmont Prep according to Ravens athletic director Brad Stott.

“We were in a tough spot with injuries and we thought the best decision would be to forfeit the Hamilton game to rest up some players and get them ready for our first league game and our Homecoming game,” Stott said. “We didn’t want to risk that game, so we decided to forfeit against Hamilton.”

Last week’s decision was a culmination of a rash of injuries that wiped out the top four running backs on the depth chart and several key players at other positions, as a roster that was already low at 25 to start the season was in the mid-teens a week ago. But the 1-4 Ravens are expecting to be ready to go come Friday.

“A lot of our injured players were a week away last week and should be good to go this week,” Stott said.
