Meeting set over brawl at midstate football game

Written by The Associated Press | Oct 7, 2013 12:49 PM

A central Pennsylvania high school football conference plans to meet with the coaches of two teams whose players brawled, forcing the game to be suspended.

Steel-High coach Tom Hailey says six of his players were ejected Friday as well as "three or four'' Susquenita players.

Steel-High was leading the Mid-Penn Conference game 25-0 when the brawl broke out just before halftime Friday.

Conference chairman Dave Bitting says Hailey and Susquenita coach Bart Miller will meet with members of the conferences executive committee today to discuss the brawl and possible disciplinary action. The group will recommend possible penalties, which must then be approved by the conference's board of directors.

The meeting was slated for this morning at East Pennsboro Middle School in Enola.
