Curry County Cats get forfeit win

CNJ staff

The Curry County Cats picked up their fifth win in six tries Sunday the easy way — by forfeit.

The Roswell Rhinos, apparently hurting with injuries, showed up with only nine players at Leon Williams Stadium. Curry County coach Paul Lopez “loaned” a few players to the Rhinos and the teams played a scrimmage, with the Cats winning 24-6.

Lopez expects a stiffer challenge in the team’s final regular-season home game at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday against the Albuquerque Razorbacks. The Cats finish the regular season on April 17 at Farmington against the New Mexico Miners.
