PITTSBURGH (AP) - A meeting between officials from two high schools and the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League has settled the fallout from an ugly brawl between the schools’ football teams earlier this month.

WPIAL Executive Director Tim O’Malley says New Castle High School has taken full responsibility for the team’s fight with Central Valley High School players before their Oct. 9 game.

Video shows the fight began after Central Valley players came onto the field and stomped on New Castle’s logo at the 50 yard line.

After Monday’s meeting, New Castle’s entire team was placed on probation for a year. New Castle’s head coach was also suspended for two games and seating at New Castle’s stadium must be rearranged.

Both schools also promised to establish a “plan of sportsmanship” for future games.
