Blows were exchanged in the hallways of the Ice Line hockey rink in Chester County after a high school championship game, a video shows.
CrossingBroad first reported on the video, which was published on Twitter after a matchup between West Chester Rustin High School and Springfield Friday.
The game was the final for the Flyers Cup A Final, the title game for a high school tournament hosted by Philadelphia's NHL club. Rustin won, according to Pa Prep Live.
It is unclear if those involved were players for either team.
The video was tweeted to the Springfield School District's account after the district posted: "Springfield Ice Hockey... Proud of our team tonight. Thank you for representing our school with class. Stay gold. TB"
"This is what you call classy?" Eric Flynn wrote in response, attaching the video to the tweet.
Springfield issued a statement Friday night in response to the incident, saying they had notified the proper authorities about the fight:
The Springfield administration has been made aware of an incident that occurred at the hockey game on the evening of Friday, March 11, 2016. The administration has been and continues to assist all appropriate authorities in bringing a resolution to the matter. Thank you for your continued support.
CrossingBroad found a tweet that claimed police were called to the fight, but the extent of law enforcement involvement in handling the incident is unclear.
