A high school football game in the Clark County School District erupted into a brawl. Police stepped in, using pepper spray, to break up the fight after the Canyon Springs Pioneers’ 20-15 victory over the Basic Wolves.
The game was off to a bad start with referees handing out at least 35 penalties for personal fouls and unsportsmanlike conduct. In the second half of the game, four players including the quarterback from Canyon Springs were ejected from the game.
Not condoning fighting, but since when has a brawl between football players resulted in the need for pepper spray?— Chris Abaray (@ChrisAbaray) September 16, 2017
When brawl between teams, which was clearly coming, isn't handled by coaches, faculties, refs, and/or parents and left to cops to sort out.— The New DOW (@TheNewDOW) September 16, 2017
