PEARLAND, Texas -- Two youth football teams in the Houston area are banned from the playoffs after some coaches ended up in a brawl.

The Sept. 18 fight during a game between two Pearland pee wee teams, the Hurricanes and the Patriots, was captured on videotape by a parent in the stands.

The board of the Bay Area Football League on Wednesday night declined to reverse a decision to ban both squads from the playoffs. Several coaches also have been banned from further involvement with the teams.

The video shows two youngsters on the field apparently scuffling after a play, then coaching staffers are seen chasing and struggling with each other on the sidelines.

Hurricanes quarterback Daniel Petty, who's 11, told the Houston Chronicle that "it's basically the coaches' fault."
