Football: Carson, Narbonne receive punishment from rules committee
The City Section rules committee has placed the Carson and Narbonne football programs on probation for a pre-game incident between the two schools on Oct. 5 involving shouting, arguing and a close encounter of players.
Also, a Narbonne assistant coach has been banned from coaching at any LAUSD school. Head coach Manuel Douglas said the school intends to appeal that decision. Both coaching staffs are required to re-take a CIF coaching education course. The probation does not prevent either school from participating in the playoffs.
Also, the rules committee has restricted South Gate from practicing for two days for practicing on a professional development day.
Hamilton has forfeited seven junior varsity games and one varsity game because of an ineligible player.
The Sylmar and Reseda football programs were placed on one year probation because of an incident at the end of their game on Oct. 12. A Reseda player who allegedly hit a Sylmar coach will be ineligible through Oct. 12, 2013.
In other decisions, an incident at the Torres-View Park game on Sept. 21 has resulted in the two schools having a "no contest" for the 2013-14 season.
