Premature court-storming leads to brawl in high school game

Wednesday February 25th, 2015

A brawl broke out in the final seconds of a game between two rival high schools in West Hartford, Conn., on Monday night, according to a report from NBC Connecticut

Thinking the game was over, students from William H. Hall High School stormed the court after the game-winning basket, according to the report. However, there were still two seconds left on the clock, the report says.

Police were called to the scene, order was restored and Hall students were asked to leave the high school so the game could be finished in peace. Hall won the game, 43-42. A video of the brawl can be seen here.
