Kenston Forest School’s varsity football team had to forfeit its originally scheduled game Saturday afternoon at The Covenant School in Charlottesville due to injuries and illness, the Kenston Forest’s athletic director confirmed.

Joe Maione, Kenston Forest’s athletic director, said injuries and illness had limited the available Kavaliers players to eight or nine.

Even though Kenston Forest has transitioned its football program to 8-man football, the circumstances would have put the team in an extremely shorthanded position.

The Kavaliers (1-3) have a scheduled bye this week, and Maione said they expect to be at full strength Oct. 19, when they visit Greenbrier Christian Academy at 7 p.m.
