High school’s football fans banned from game after fight

November 20, 2018

GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Students at a North Carolina high school whose football team is in the playoffs have been banned from seeing their opening postseason game after an on-field brawl in a previous game.

WNCT in Greenville reports the N.C. High School Athletic Association announced the ban on South Central High School students after they got into a brawl with players from D.H. Conley High School on Nov. 1 on South Central’s field.

The NCHSAA determined D.H. Conley students didn’t start the fight and thus avoided punishment.

Pitt County Schools said several South Central students would be banned from future games, but didn’t specify that no students would be prevented from attending the playoff game.

The association said if South Central wins Friday’s game against South View, students can attend future playoff games.
