ROCKFORD (WREX) — A tough football season continues for Jefferson, as the J-Hawks are forced to forfeit a 2nd straight game due to COVID-19 issues in the program. East gets an official 1-0 win, giving the E-Rabs their 5th win of the season, making them playoff eligible.

Jefferson had to forfeit against Auburn last week after a couple of players tested positive for the virus, forcing several other players to quarantine. The J-Hawks are winless this season and plan to try to take the field for week 9 to close out their season against Hononegah.
