A Florida high school soccer goalkeeper has been charged with a felony count of hitting an opposing player during a post-game brawl.

The Suwannee County Sheriff's Office booked 18-year-old goalie Jared Andrew Hendry on a felony battery charge Friday, according to its website. He was released on bond.

The Gainesville Sun reports that a dispute broke out after the Ocala Trinity Catholic team defeated Hendry's Suwannee High School team 4-2 in a playoff game Friday. An arrest report obtained by the Sun says Hendry struck an opposing player in the mouth, breaking two teeth.

Suwannee's athletic director said Hendry won't be participating in any more sports at the school. News video shows around 10 people, including some non-players, involved in the scrum.


Hendry's father declined comment Saturday.
