Dunbar was forced to forfeit its game against Southwestern on Saturday, due to too many players being ineligible for the contest.
The players were suspended for leaving the bench and brawling at the end of last week’s game against Dunbar (D.C.) in the I-95 Kickoff Classic. There were not enough available players for the Poets to play with, according to coach Lawrence Smith.
“The thing is, you do things and you’ve got to deal with the consequences,” Smith told the Baltimore Sun. “It’s a loss, but we’ll rebound from it. It’s a life lesson for the kids. These kids, they go on and some of them play in college and they will always remember this and learn from it and you hope they will use better judgement in the future.”
