Forest donned a junior-varsity uniform the group had alongside in case of such an emergency. It was No. 25, already worn on the varsity by Ethan Brandvold. And Brandvold was credited for many of Forest’s carries in that recreation.
When Belgarde left the staff, Forest took his No. 14. However the change wasn’t made on rosters opponents had. Therefore the confusion together with his on-area id.
“I forgot to inform the stats and PA individuals about it,” Muir stated. “It required an excessive amount of mind energy for me, I assume.
“We have joked about Joe having a profession night time regardless that he wasn’t there. Cole’s taken it advantageous.”
