Lindhurst forfeits tonight's rivalry game against Marsyville after vandalism incident

Lindhurst (1-6, 1-1) forfeited its Battle of the Bell rivalry football game tonight against visiting Marysville (2-5, 1-1) after at least eight students reportedly were involved in vandalisim on the Marysville campus.

Because of disciplinary action against the students, Lindhurst officials said there weren't enough players to field a varsity team for the Golden Empire League game.

The Marysville Appeal-Democrat reported that several areas of the Marysville High campus had been defaced with paint, including the face of an Indian logo - the school's mascot - on the sidewalk near the gym, before school officials quickly cleaned up the damage.
