Baton Rouge HS Football teams get into bench-clearing brawl on field

By Sharief Ishaq - bio | email

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Two Baton Rouge area football teams got into a heated brawl during a matchup Wednesday afternoon.

Football teams in the area have been using-seven-on seven drills for most of the summer to get ready for the upcoming season.   But, when the teams from Woodlawn High and Plaquemine High got together for their drills, things got a little heated.

Twenty minutes into their game, tempers flared and a fight broke out between the Panthers and Green Devils. Punches were thrown and helmets were ripped off.  It took coaches from both squads about five minutes to get things under order. The game did not resume after the fight. Both teams left the field and returned back home.

Members of both teams were confrontational leading up to the fight.  Things began getting heated in  the first series of the game when a Plaquemines defender threw down a Woodlawn receiver. Later in the game, an argument took place between two players about all the bumping and pushing happening during all of the plays.

The matchup was held at Parkview Baptist in Baton Rouge.
