Woodside coach Justin Andrews made the decision Tuesday to forfeit his team's season-ending football game with South San Francisco.
The game was scheduled to be played Friday at Woodside at 7:30 p.m.
Woodside has struggled with the number of available players all season. After last Friday's 45-6 loss to Menlo-Atherton which dropped Woodside's record to 0-9, Andrews had only 15 healthy players remaining for the season-finale game with South City.
"We suited up 18 or 19 guys for the M-A game,'' Andrews said. "Considering the circumstances they played decently, although the score doesn't show that. But that game took a toll on us.''
Of particular concern was the state of his offensive line, which had just "3 1/2'' able bodied players remaining, according to Andrews.
One possible remedy was to bring up linemen from the 2-8 frosh-soph team.
"One sophomore could've come up,'' Andrews said. "But his parents shot that down. We looked at every possible way to make this happen. But it just wouldn't have been fair for anyone involved.''
