‘Why are teens behaving like hooligans?’ asks STOMPer M. Two ACS (I) students were allegedly assaulted at a bus stop near the Old Police Academy pitch after a rugby match between ACS(I) and St Andrew’s Secondary School.
A fight had broken out earlier between the teams and their supporters on the Old Police Academy pitch after ACS(I) beat St Andrew’s 8-7 at the Schools National Under-17 Police Cup Final.
The STOMPer was upset after reading about the scuffle reported in The Straits Times today (Apr 13).
Said the STOMPer:
“Chaos and mayhem erupted after the final whistle was blown as a fight break between the players.
“To make matters worse, supporters from both teams invade the pitch as well. Because of it, an ACS(I) player was left with a bloodied nose and a broken tooth.”
The STOMPer adds that after the event, two other ACS(I) students were allegedly assaulted by some boys at a nearby bus-stop. One of the boys suffered a broken nose.
“Is this how students from respected schools act?
“Why are they behaving like gangsters? Their actions are similar to hooligans and their behaviour shows that they are sore losers. More and more of such actions can be seen at local sporting events. It is very disappointing.
“What happened to sportsmanship and fair play?”
