After two extremely lopsided losses, a Wisconsin high school announced it will cancel most of the remaining games on its varsity schedule.
The team only has 22 players, according to WAOW, so it’s reasonable to speculate that player safety could be a factor. Players can play both sides, as many do across the country, but such a small squad leaves minimal room for injuries or other absences. That concern grows if the opponent physically dominates the plays, as was likely the case in those first two games, which resulted in a combined score of 134-0.
Menominee Indian will play its home opener against Tomahawk on Oct. 7 and the homecoming game against Northland Pines on Oct. 14, according to the releases. The junior varsity team will continue to play, according to WJFW.
