The incident that caused an official to eject one of Juneau-Douglas' top players from Saturday's large-schools state playoff game will keep him from Saturday's championship game against Palmer, according to Alaska's governing body of high school activities.
Crimson Bears senior Faifo Levale was ejected for throwing two punches at a South player after he recovered a fumble for a touchdown. The ejection means the 280-pound lineman must sit out one game -- Saturday's First National Bowl at Anchorage Football Stadium.
A lawyer representing Juneau called the Alaska Schools Activities Association on Monday, said ASAA director of special events John Andrews, asking if the Crimson Bears could appeal.
Andrews said it's a ruling ASAA cannot overturn.
