That makes MUCH more sense...a forfeit rather than a cancellation. Pusch Ridge probably pushed the AIA to correct that sense it impacted them pretty big (PR would have lost a home game in the 2nd round). It was a game scheduled for Ray and their athletic director or coach definitely made a mistake entering it as a cancellation. Still, I am kinda surprised that the AIA made this change.
It definitely affected Pusch Ridge, but I also believe it could have caused more problems than good. I really have a hard time seeing PR win on Friday now. I believe Camp Verde will come to town and will beat PR. They may have been better off facing Bisbee, although they would have had to travel to St Johns. Either way PR will be out of the playoffs within the next 2 weeks! (more than likely, next week)
