A high school football team in Massachusetts has been suspended for taunting opponents with obscenities at their last game.  

Southeastern Regional Vocational Technical High School superintendent Luis Lopes was not happy with his school’s varsity football team during last week’s game against Upper Cape Cod Regional Technical High School.

“The lack of discipline and respect for an opponent shown on Friday night is not characteristic of Southeastern’s athletic program, and we extend our sincere apologies to the members and coaching staff of the Upper Cape Cod Regional Technical High School football team and those in attendance,” Lopes said, according to the local CBS affiliate.

Southeastern will forfeit its next game against Shawsheen Valley Tech, and the school will be closely monitoring behavior of players over the next two weeks to determine if they’re allowed to play a Thanksgiving Day game against West Bridgewater.

“We will be thoroughly reviewing the events that transpired on Friday night,” Lopes said “We will ensure that such unacceptable behavior is not repeated in the future.”
