Euclid says "forfeit," Solon says "no contest" and sighted OHSAA regulations. Why did you choose "forfeit" in your thread title and not "no contest?"Euclid Schools said Solon has chosen to forfeit the game rather than make the journey to Euclid’s stadium, however Solon Schools said this is considered a “no contest” rather than a forfeit under Ohio High School Athletic Association regulations.www.cleveland19.com
Solon offered to host the game instead, Euclid declined. Very sad story overall. I think Euclid is a great new venue for high school football and have enjoyed taking in games there without any incidents, but the reality is it's unsafe. Pretty surprising to see Solon just say forget it entirely and forfeit though.
