CIAC: Holy Cross football forfeits win to Kennedy

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.
