Nederland football forfeits its first game to Hayden

Updated: Aug. 22, 2:01 p.m.

Nederland has forfeit its game against Hayden this week.

The two teams were scheduled to play at 1 p.m. Saturday in Nederland. But Nederland athletic director Rick Elertson informed the CHSAA office on Tuesday that his team will not have enough players who have hit the nine-practice minimum prior to Saturday's game.

Both schools tried to reschedule the game, but it didn't work out. As a result, Nederland has forfeit to Hayden.

Over the summer, Nederland hired Beth Buglione, believed to be the first female football coach in state history.
