High School Soccer Game Between Prairie Seeds Academy & Totino-Grace Ends in All-Out Fight and Disqualfication [VIDEO]

Channel 12 News via FOX 9

You may have heard about the massive fight that broke out last week during a high school sectionals soccer game between Prairie Seeds Academy of Brooklyn Park and Fridley’s Totino-Grace. In the last seconds before the final whistle, fisticuffs between two players and eventually an all-out melee broke out on the field. FOX 9 News reported last week;

The first swing was thrown by one Prairie Seeds player, and a Totino Grace player retaliated. Soon, the brawl quickly escalated to involve several more players. A Prairie Seeds player even punched the Totino Grace coach in the head as he tried to break up the melee.

“One of their kids swung at our players, then it escalated from there, a lot further than it should have gone,” said Totino Grace Co- Captain Ryan Zurbay, who was on the field during the fight.

One T-G player suffered a split lip and wound up getting stitches. Teammates told FOX 9 News they didn’t know why the fight erupted.

But now there’s a new development. Prairie Seeds has been disqualified from tourney play, but not due to the brawl. Apparently during the investigation of the incident, League officials uncovered another problem. According to a press release from the Minnesota State High School League; the team used an “ineligible player” during the entire 2012 season. Prairie Seeds officials are in court this morning to try and get a reversal. School and League authorities have determined that a total of 10 players form both teams were involved in the brawl. The FOX 9 News report on the story is below.
