HEALDTON, Okla. -- The Healdton Bulldogs have played their final football game of the 2018 season.

All remaining games have been canceled after four players were injured in last week's game against Walters.

That left Healdton with only 11 players to take the field. Head Coach Mark Barrett said the risk of more players being hurt wasn't one he was willing to take.

"That's the way it is for Class A football sometimes," he said. "You just got to decide if the injury risk is worth what we're going through, and what the kids are going through. In this case, I decided it wasn't worth it this year, so we just decided to move on."

Barrett said he hopes more students will suit up for the 2019 football squad.
