How do I forfeit a game?

in the event of a forfeit, a scorekeeper or league administrator can forfeit a game by selecting "Home Forfeit" or "Visiting Forfeit" from the game status menu within the scorekeeper administration area. League administrators can forfeit a game at any time.

If the game had not started at the time of the forfeit, the non-forfeiting team is awarded a win and receives the points awarded for a win in their overall standings. The forfeiting team is awarded a loss.

If the game was partially played at the time of a forfeit, individual player stats earned in the forfeited game remain on player's individual stat records. Team standings are modified based on the result of the forfeit.

If an already completed game in “Final” status, is determined that the game is now subject to a Home or Away Forfeit, to reflect the proper Standings/Stats recalculation, you must Toggle the Game Status as such: Moving the game status from "Final" to "In Progress" and then to "Home Forfeit" or "Away Forfeit" does trigger the Standings/Stats recalculation.  After doing this, you can now see the correct team records on the standings page.
