McClatchy-Lincoln basketball game ends in controversy as fans rush court

The quarterfinals of the girls basketball game between CK McClatchy High School and Lincoln of Stockton ended early on Monday with fans rushing to the court before the time was up. The move deprived Lincoln of the opportunity to score in the very controversial match. The fans went to the stadium with about seven seconds to play. Lincoln tried to get off the floor, but the referees had already stated that the game was over, giving the CKM Lions a 68-66 victory – and ending the Trojans’ season. Will DeBoard, assistant commissioner at CIF Sac-Joaquin, said there was “nothing” that could reverse a result or repeat a game once officials said it was over. “We can do almost nothing,” he said, calling what happened in the game “unfortunate.” “You never want the fans to run on the pitch and you never want the games to end that way,” he said. “Honestly, I feel like both Lincoln and McClacci left this game without feeling great.” The McClatchy girls advance to Wednesday night semifinals with top Oak Ridge.
