The principals from both schools released the following joint statement regarding the incident:

“The game between John F. Kennedy High School and Northwood High School ended in the first quarter, according to the letter from Kennedy Principal Vickie Adamson and Northwood Principal Johnathan Garrick.
We are writing to inform you that the varsity football game tonight, September 29, 2023 between Kennedy and Northwood High Schools was ended in the first quarter of the game due to an on-field altercation between players on both teams.
