SUDBURY, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) – Fireworks during the Lincoln-Sudbury and Fitchburg high school football game went awry on Friday night, leaving fans angry and scared.
The Lincoln-Sudbury High School home game was supposed to feature a post-game fireworks display against Fitchburg as a fun addition to the festivities. However, the fireworks accidentally set off during the game with about nine minutes remaining.
The fireworks display, launched from a wooded area behind the visitors’ stands, went off into the air directly above the pitch and landed materials on the pitch and in the stands welcoming Fitchburg fans.
This not only scared many fans, but some Fitchburg fans felt they were being intentionally targeted due to the location of the fireworks, according to Lincoln-Sudbury High School Principal Bella Wong. .
Wong said in a statement that Fitchburg fans were not targeted by the fireworks.
“I apologize on behalf of our community to that of the Fitchburg school community who [Friday night’s] events made one of them think it would be a possibility, ”Wong said.
