PONCA CITY, Okla. (KTUL) — Ponca City High School held a women's basketball game against East Central High School Tuesday night that ended in a fight.
Ponca mom Kesha Ball said East Central was winning the game up until the fourth quarter, when Ponca came back with the win.
Right before the fourth quarter ended, video shows Ponca called for a timeout and one of the East Central players stood behind them in the huddle.
After the game ended and Ponca won by two points, Ball said the East Central coach got in the Ponca coach's face.
Fans and players from both teams rushed the court and fighting with each other.
Tulsa Public Schools released a statement on the incident:
