The Minnesota State High School League is investigating a fight that broke out at the end of a soccer game in Maple Grove on Thursday, the Star Tribune reported.

The teams, Totino-Grace High School and Prairie Seeds Academy, were playing to determine who would advance to the state tournament.

The Star Tribune reported that Prairie Seeds Academy was up 2-1 when a fight broke out on the sideline between the players. The MSHSL has the authority to declare the players involved ineligible to compete.

The Pioneer Press reported that at least one Totino-Grace player was injured, requiring stitches.

With the MSHSL and police both investigating the situation, repercussions could include suspension from play and criminal charges, the Pioneer Press reported.
