The forfeits were the result of a fight during the Class 5A, Zone 1 Championship game on Feb. 10 at LeFlore. The Rattlers won the game 55-19.

A video obtained by AL.com shows several players from each team involved in an altercation during the game.

AHSAA assistant manager Jamie Lee confirmed Monday that eight BC Rain players have been suspended along with four of LeFlore’s eight players. As a result, neither team had enough student-athletes remaining to play Monday’s games. Mobile County athletic director Brad Lowell also confirmed that both teams were to forfeit.

UMS-Wright and St. Paul’s advance to the Southwest Regional Semifinals on Saturday in Montgomery.

AHSAA rules state that any student-athlete involved in an altercation or student-athlete who leaves the bench during an altercation is suspended for 20% of that team’s competitions.

Lee said the suspensions were upheld late Monday afternoon.
