Game canceled: The St. John-Endicott at Kootenai game was canceled because the Eagles had nine of 17 players out with the flu this week, school officials said. Because the game can’t be made up, Kootenai receives a forfeit. School officials said St. John-Endicott, with an enrollment of 100, had about a quarter of its students sick this week.
