Fans May Be Barred from Hancock-Warren Rematch
News

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) -- The two Georgia high school football teams involved in a post-game brawl that left a coach severely injured are scheduled to face each other again, but a school official insists on several conditions.

The Augusta Chronicle reports that Warren County Superintendent Carole Jean Carey wants the game with Hancock Central played with no fans, though parents of players and school officials could attend.

The superintendent doesn't want the player accused of hitting Warren County coach David Daniel to play in the game, and said her team would forfeit if all the stipulations aren't met.

Daniel suffered crushed bones in his face and had metal plates implanted in his head following his team's 21-2 win over Hancock Central on Oct. 14.

The teams are scheduled to face each other on Sept. 28.
