Altercation could alter playoffs

An altercation between two high school football teams in the western part of the state could have an impact on the 3-A state playoffs.

Freedom defeated Chase 55-13 last week, but in the third quarter an altercation broke out which could keep the Patriots out of the playoffs.

The incident, which happened after a Freedom punt, resulted in five Freedom players and two Chase players being ejected for fighting, according to the Hickory Daily Record.

N.C. High School Athletic Association officials are currently reviewing the specifics of the incident. A decision will be made later this week as to whether or not Freedom will be allowed to participate in the state playoffs.

According to NCHSAA rules, any team that has three or more players ejected for fighting, or has six players ejected for any reason, over the course of the season is ineligible to play in the playoffs.

So far this season, three teams have been barred from the playoffs due to ejections — Southwest Guilford, Northwest Halifax and Weldon.

Freedom has a 9-1 overall record and a 4-1 mark in the South Mountain Athletic 2-A/3-A Conference. HighSchoolOT.com projects that the Patriots will receive an automatic bid to the state playoffs. If the team is barred, the automatic bid will not be replaced with another team, instead it will be vacated, creating a new at-large spot for another team.
