2 Flint-area schools limiting football game attendance after fights

Two Flint area school systems are limiting attendance at upcoming high school football games as part of a series of new safety measures after fighting disrupted a recent match-up. 

Flint Community Schools announced this week that attendance at the next two home games will be invitation-only for the Flint Jaguars city-wide high school football team.

Beecher High School in Mt. Morris north of Flint also is putting limits on fans in the stands, barring student spectators for a Friday night matchup against Flint Hamady High School.

The moves come after the Sept. 16 match-up between the Flint Jaguars and the Beecher Buccaneers varsity teams ended abruptly at halftime after multiple fights erupted among spectators inside Flint’s Houston Stadium and in the parking lot.

“The game was at halftime, and a big ruckus broke out and it re-ignited and the police said ‘we’re not going to do this’ and stopped the game,” Jamie Foster, athletic director for Flint Community Schools, told The Detroit News. “Beecher was leading …  when it was stopped, and the coaches agreed that it should be the final score.
