Holy Cross football has forfeited its win over Kennedy in Week 1, according to the CIAC.
The Crusaders did so because of the use of an ineligible player, according to a post on CIAC Twitter accounts this afternoon. No further information was given on those accounts, or the CIAC website.
Holy Cross beat Kennedy 19-0 at Ray Snyder Sr. Field in Waterbury.
After the forfeit, the game stands as a 1-0 Eagle victory over the Crusaders. Kennedy is now 1-1 on the season while Holy Cross is 0-2.
Here's what the CIAC says about ineligible players:
"If a team uses an ineligible player, the game, whether won or lost, shall be counted, at the discretion of the CIAC Board of Control, as a defeat for the team on which the ineligible player played. For the opposing team such a game shall be counted as a victory. All such games shall be counted on the schedule of both teams as games played."
The Board of Control met today.
