According to multiple reports on Monday afternoon, the remainder of the football seasons for Wilson Hunt and Wilson Fike, both members of the Big East, have been cancelled after an on-field fight between the two teams on Nov. 1. 

The Warriors were scheduled to play one more game, which will be forfeited. They finish their season at 4-7, while Wilson Fike ends its season at 4-6. Neither team will qualify for the playoffs, though both were in contention for a possible berth in the 3-A postseason. 

According to a Tweet on the night of the fight from the Wilson Times’ Paul Durham, pepper spray had to be used by police to end the fight. 

The decision was made official in a statement released by Wilson County Schools Superintendent Lane B. Mills.
