Basketbrawl: Game cancelled after crazy all-in fight

A high-school basketball match has been cancelled after a ridiculous all-in brawl involving around 60 people.

It is unclear exactly what initiated the brawl, however the match was described as extremely 'chippy' between Monessen and Clairton High School's.

Late in the fourth quarter, the tension erupted, with fans, coaches and players all getting involved.

Two people were reportedly treated for injuries after the fight, including one police officer.

One witness blamed a section of parents in the crowd for firing up the players.

“People were getting sucker-punched," Eric Fusco said.

"I saw guys just getting picked off. The game was chippy from the start, but I didn’t think this was going to happen.

"People have said they should ban both teams from the playoffs. I don’t think that’s going to solve anything.

"I think the fans are way more guilty than the players. You can’t hold players responsible for what fans do."

The game was cancelled with minutes left to play, before firefighters were called in to help ventilate the building after pepper spray was used by police.
