Busy night in High Point last night during the High Point Andrews-High Point Central game, at the Central gymnasium and it got real heated during the boy’s game, but the high-octane action was not coming from the basketball court, the heat was on in the stands and in the upper level of the HP Central gym to be exact….
The game on the basketball court between the High Point Central Bison and the Andrews Red Raiders wasn’t even close, HP Andrews won that game going away with Jalen Ford leading the way for HPA, with 20 points…
The real battle was going on up the balcony/upper level at Central and what started out as a one-on-one contest, quickly escalated into an all out brawl and they ended up having to completely clear the gym and finish the game with just the boys basketball players and the cheerleaders allowed in the building…..
A fight broke out between two girls and the sad part about all this, is that neither of the females is affiliated with HP Central or HP Andrews…..A fight with two female fatales and then more girls get into the fracas and here comes the High Point Police Force in full force, to clear the building of 2,000-2,500 people…A near riot breaks out and it is all because the girls want to duke it out and kick somebody’s butt….(The police ended up arresting and charging four-five female fighters.)
It started with two females fighting and then they had to clear the gym and lock down the building….Not a happy time for the HP Central fans, who were not in the wrong, they just ended up with the wrong women in the building, at the wrong time and then for the final 7:25 of last night’s game with HPC and HPA, nobody could be in the building, except for the members of the boy’s varsity basketball team and the cheerleaders and everyone else in there had to leave the gym, as the fourth and final quarter was completed…..
from the High Point Enterprise at www.hpe.com:
HIGH POINT â€“ When High Point Andrews coach James Abell removed his starters midway through the fourth quarter of Friday nightâ€™s game at High Point Central, they didnâ€™t receive a well-deserved hand from the overflow Raiders crowd.
There was almost no one left.
A fight broke out in the stands early in the fourth quarter, and in the ensuing chaos police and Central administrators ordered the gym cleared. So the final 7:25 looked like a glorified scrimmage, but that had little bearing on the final result as the Raiders raced to an 86-52 nonconference victory over the Bison.
