Murtaugh Team Too Injured to Play

MURTAUGH, Idaho (AP) — One by one, players for a southern Idaho football team fell to injury — so many that by the third quarter, Murtaugh High School didn’t have enough healthy boys to continue. Not only did Murtaugh forfeit that game two weeks ago at Rimrock High School, but the tiny high school decided it would concede its final two games as well. The Times-News reports Murtaugh athletic director Clete Edmunson said there were just too many health concerns, too many fears about the toll of this rough sport, that finishing out the season was deemed inappropriate. Murtaugh plays eight-man football, against other small Idaho schools. It started the Rimrock game on Sept. 21 with 12 players, but halfway through was down to just six healthy ones — too few to continue.
