MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Two high school football teams from the Memphis area have been placed on three years of probation and barred from post-season play.

WMC-TV in Memphis reported (https://bit.ly/1wQz6No ) that the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association’s penalties, handed down Friday, stemmed from an Oct. 23 on-field fight.

Hillcrest High School and Mitchell High School got into the brawl after Hillcrest topped it’s opponent and the fight broke out.

Nobody was taken into custody during or after the fight.

The probation means the two teams that would have made next week’s state playoffs could be sitting at home pending an appeal.

Both school say they will appeal the sanctions.
