FIGHTS IN THE STANDS END HIGH SCHOOL ALL-STAR GAME

An all-star High school football game was organized in Ohio to show off the talent of the Columus “City League.”  This was the inaugural all-star game and it could be the last:

The first North-South City League All-Star game was on the way to being a success with a crowd of more than 3,000 until two fights in the stands forced Columbus police to have the game called with 8 minutes, 37 seconds left in the fourth quarter and the South leading 15-14.

The fights quickly were broken up, but fans near the incidents went into a panic and ran from their seats. In the end, approximately 10 squad cars were in the parking lot and a helicopter with a search light hovered overhead.

It doesn’t seem like anybody was arrested, which may be a first for anything having to do with the state of Ohio.

With the game ending with 8 minutes still left to play, the people most affected by the sudden ending of the game were the gamblers in the crowd.  Oh am I the only one who gambles on high school football games?

    I was so hoping the city wouldn’t be in Ohio. Sigh.
