A high school football game between two teams in Georgia has come to a bizarre conclusion for the second straight year.
On Friday evening, Benedictine met Jenkins and clearly led with a result of 42:0. However, according to a report by several crowd disturbances led to the officials canceling the game at half-time WJCL in Savannah.
Apparently there was no real threat, but the disruption was caused by a TikTok challenge designed to make it appear as if a chaotic incident had taken place. The officials called off the game out of caution.
What’s really strange is that the same duel ended up roughly the same way when these teams met last season.
Accordingly Mike Swanson at Sports IllustratedLast year’s game was called off just before half-time, with Benedictine leading 45-0. This cancellation came after a (real) argument broke out in the stands.
“It was an eerily similar result to last year’s Benedictine-Jenkins game, when an altercation in the Jenkins stands caused panic and spectators to leave the stands,” Savannah Now reported after the game last year Year. Benedictine was 45-0 up and it was 2:10 in the first half when the game kicked off early last year.”
Benedictine was declared the winner and started the season 1-0. They have won two consecutive 4A state championships.
