Just going by the news article calm down boss...

The Draw that became a Loss
The game was intense Friday night; the Bath team entered ranked number 1 in the state among small schools and jumped out to an early 14-0 lead. But, the Bombers fought back, eventually taking a seven-point lead in the fourth quarter.

Admirable move by the two coaches, too bad State rules had to go and screw it all up!

Loc: at the game
In baseball, the game is an offical game after so many innings, and regardless of the location, the team that is ahead is the winner. Why wouldn't that be applicable here? Is there no rule in football (hs, college, or NFL)? This doesn't seem fair at all t0 ER.

Totally agree...without a rule they should have been allowed to set a date to finish that 2 minutes...

I wasnt upset.....dint mean it to come out that way.

The newscasters have it wrong though....Sportswriters polls dont come out till week 3.

I don't think it was very admirable by the Bath coach at all....refused to play at a neutral site, and is accepting the win.

If it was admirable..he would have forfeited as well.

Yea, it was admirable for him to Forfeit..but shouldnt have had to..its rediculous not to either have a rule that after so long the game is a game and the leader is the winner if something happens, and without a rule, they need to allow the game to be finished somewhere ...
