the guy waving his coat and uttering profanites didn't necessarily have to be an MC supporter but possibly a local EF hater- i've seen many people over the years sitting on the visitors side with absolute venom in them against the home team that was their personal rival.Great game by both teams and it was an Instant Classic! You could really tell at the end of the game that EF was the younger team and MC's big game experienced showed. They just made a few more plays at the end than East did. One or two more plays by the Eagles and they would be playing Page next week.
As for some of the fans at the end of the game.... I get running on the field to cheer on your kid or your team but It's a shame that some adults act like complete fools in front of a bunch of crying kids who just had their hearts ripped out of their chest. The East and MC kids battled all night and to have a few adult fans run out on the field and taunt them after the game was disappointment. The guy standing in the middle of the Goalline waving his coat around his head talking trash to the kids and I was at the end of the home stands standing close enough to hear some of the words coming out of his mouth should've been arrested on the spot. Those kids and coaches from EF didn't deserve that at all. They just went toe to toe with the best team in the state show some class and respect. I would say the same thing if the tables were turned and it was a East Fan. If it's players and coaches that's one thing but some jackass fan who had no part in the game should be taken out in cuffs. That is why there needs to be more police at big games like that cause I agree it could have turn ugly quickly but the East Coaches did a good job of getting their kids away from it as quick as possible.
