Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy will forfeit its opening game Friday because the team won’t have helmets and shoulder pads ready, the coach of the opposing team confirmed Wednesday.
SACA was scheduled to play at North Cobb Christian on Friday.
‘’They sent shoulder pads and helmets off to be conditioned, and they haven’t come back yet; that’s the story that I got,’’ North Cobb Christian coach Harry Miles said. “I’m trying to find time to make it up, but it doesn’t look good.’’
Call to SACA asking for comment were not returned Wednesday. The Georgia High School Association was not aware of SACA’s decision.
Both teams were 1-9 last season. This was to be the first meeting between the two.
