With their first varsity game under their belt, the Russellville Indians were scheduled to play the Tipton Cardinals tonight.
However, due to a shortage of players eligible to play, that game will not be played. The Indians only had 14 players available for action.
"It just wasn't practical for us to play the game this week," Russellville coach Roger VanDeZande said. "Between people that didn't have enough practices and ones that were injured, we didn't have enough to play."
With no game to play this week, VanDeZande instead will be putting his players through a light practice today before resuming a normal week of practice Monday in preparation for Sweet Springs.
"We're optimistic to have a full roster,"VanDeZande said. "For now, we're just focused on getting healthy and eligible."
Russellville dropped their first varsity home game against Missouri Military Academy 53-8 last Friday.
