The game film of Friday's game between Gaither and Alonso, in which two bench-clearing scuffles reportedly occurred, will be reviewed by Hillsborough County athletic director Lanness Robinson.

Robinson said Saturday he requested the game film upon hearing about a scuffle and will review it over the weekend. If he finds any parties acted in an "inappropriate" manner, he will be in contact with school athletic directors for possible disciplinary actions.   

Any suspensions would greatly affect Alonso, which clinched a playoff berth with the 33-7 district win. The Ravens (4-5) finish the regular season Friday at undefeated Armwood (9-0). Gaither's season is over with a 3-7 record.

According to the Times' game story, the teams engaged in two altercations late in the fourth quarter after Ravens defensive end Anthony Chickillo's 35-yard interception return for a touchdown.
