Fines, multiple suspensions and student penalties were among the punishments in the wake of last Thursday’s post-game brawl between the D.H. Conley and South Central High School football teams, according to a Pitt County Schools statement on Tuesday.

“School fines were levied, several players were suspended and several students were banned from further games this season,” the release sai. “Both head football coaches are also required to take the NFHS Teaching and Modeling Behavior course prior to the start of the next contest.”

“We accept the decisions and are looking to move forward,” SC Athletic Director Chris Cherry said in the release. “After finishing an undefeated season, South Central football doesn’t want this to interrupt the rest of the season and playoffs.”

The incident occurred following the Falcons tight 28-27 win that clinched the 3-A/4-A Eastern Carolina Conference championship. As the team was celebrating, SC students joined their team on the field, at which point a flag was planted in the Conley turf. This led to shoving and punches between players and students and the two coaches arguing with one another. 

“This afternoon, the NCHSAA informed (Conley) of penalties that were handed down in reference to our actions during this event,” Vikings Athletic Director Rob Maloney said in the release. “We have reviewed the penalties and have accepted them with no plans of appealing. We also plan to use this experience as a teachable moment for all of our student athletes, coaches and fans. In addition, we wish South Central the best of luck in the playoffs.”

Conley and SC will both finish off their regular seasons Friday. The Vikings will travel to face West Craven and the Falcons will hit the road to face Hertford County. Following the end of their regular season, the two sides will await their seedings for the state playoffs to be released Saturday.
