This is what is commonly called a no-win situation. A fight at a football game on Sept. 21 between Mt. Hebron and Centennial resulted in the following: two coaches and four players ejected from the game. A Centennial player sustained a broken wrist and his father then sued an assistant coach at Centennial for injuring his son. The case went to court and the assault charge against the coach was dropped. But the coach was removed. So everybody essentially loses.
