Running Clock

Say going in to a game….you know that it will be a lopsided score and in the first half a team scores more than enough points to start the 3rd quarter with a running clock……would both coaches be able to agree before the game to not have a running clock and then play JV kids the second half?

The short answer is no. This is an adopted rule under Rule 3, Section 1, Article 2 of the NFHS Rule Book. Once we have the adoption, we cannot alter the rule.
