Injuries force Arrowhead Christian football to forfeit to Ontario Christian

In the wake of a multitude of injuries, Arrowhead Christian Academy has decided to forfeit Friday’s scheduled Ambassador League football home game against Ontario Christian.
“It’s never an easy decision,” ACA coach John Beck said. “A lot of my boys put in as much work or more as other schools. But our numbers were not what they needed to be.”
After last week’s 52-7 loss to Aquinas that dropped the Eagles’ record to 1-5, Beck said he had only two of nine healthy upperclassmen. He has 20 sophomores in the program, of which five would not have been able to play tonight. No freshmen are eligible for varsity.
“We have some kids who aren’t ready to compete against varsity kids,” Beck said. “It just got to the point where we couldn’t field a team with safety.”
He told the league before this week that this was a possibility, but didn’t make the decision until this week.
He expects to have enough healthy players to play the Oct. 19 game at Temecula Linfield Christian.
