Video: Trans Controversy Erupts When Girls Basketball Game Ends In Forfeit Following Three Injuries | Eastern North Carolina Now

    A high school girls basketball game ended in a forfeit at halftime after three girls suffered injuries in a match-up against a team that reportedly includes a male player who is six-feet tall and has facial hair.

    The coach of a Massachusetts high school team, Collegiate Charter School of Lowell, ended the game early against KIPP Academy after numerous injuries, a press release from the charter school says, alluding to the school's commitment to "inclusivity and safety."


    "The bench was already depleted going into the game with the 12-player roster having four players unable to play," the press release reads. "When the coach saw three more girls go down in the first half leaving him with five players, he made the call to end the game early."

    "Once the third was injured, the remaining five expressed concern to him about continuing to play," it continues. "The players feared getting injured and not being able to compete in the playoffs."

    The school added that it supports the coach's decision to call the game, notably emphasizing its commitment to "inclusivity" and "equity."

    "The Charter School supports this decision and reiterates its values of both inclusivity and safety for all students," the release adds. "We take the standards set by the MIAA and our Board of Trustees seriously and strive to uphold them on and off the court. We also follow the guidance from the MIAA and state laws regarding equity and access for all student-athletes."

    Video allegedly taken from the game has been posted online, showing a tall male appearing to injure a female player from Collegiate Charter.


    "Trans-identified male player for Kipp Academy in MA injured 3 girls before half time causing Lowell Collegiate Charter School to forfeit," Riley Gaines, a top collegiate swimmer-turned-girls sports advocate, captioned the video. "A man hitting a woman used to be called domestic abuse. Now it's called brave. Who watches this & actually thinks this is 'compassionate, kind, and inclusive'?"


    According to a report from ItemLive, sources say the player in question is male and "more than 6 feet tall with facial hair." However, KIPP officials are refusing to confirm the player's "gender identity."

    The report also suggests that the charter school's athletic director and coach knew KIPP's team included a male player.

    "Coach [Kevin Ortins] knew going into the game, already, because we had them at home the first game of the year and nothing happened then, so he knew going into the game," Collegiate Charter Athletic Director Kyle Pelczar said.

    Last year, Gaines and others testified before Congress about the risks associated with male athletes being permitted to play on girls and women's teams.


    "Not only do women have to worry about losing out on opportunities and being exploited in locker rooms, allowing men into women's sports also puts girls at greater risk of injury," Gaines testified. "In September of last year, North Carolina volleyball player Payton McNabb suffered serious injury after a trans-identified male player spiked a ball at her head, rendering her unconscious. Payton experienced extensive trauma to her head and neck and long-term concussion symptoms. Still to this day, a year and three-ish months later, she is still partially paralyzed on her right side, her vision is impaired, and she isn't playing college sports, like she had dreamed of."

is your analysis like a study, or maybe a link? A link to a study , perhaps?

You Leftists really do project your sordid character upon others.

I have done an analysis of "you people," and you are the most intolerant of every group that you cannot fathom, with little or no real ideals yourself, only talking points, and talk you do; constant in blather mode, without having any real basis to do so.

Maybe, that is why you embrace such unprincipled paths, and you are right, "BC deserves better."

No Big Bob: Far too many people are failures.

One first step on that road toward failure for anyone is a boy/man pretending to be a girl/woman to compete against the fairer sex in competitive sports at any level, where awards are given designating who is truly best in an exacting, fervent competition of skills .

Big Bob, as a contact oriented Leftist, you will be remembered as an extremely conflicted and confused person ...

A person who obviously Fails to see the reality of what is true in this either, or question of right or wrong.

One who is a real failure is named Joe Biden, and he is very disposable in the November election.

What's real, is what's in front of you. People are not failures nor are they disposable. I will say it again, how you treat the most vulnerable will be how you are remembered.

Big Bob: Humanity? Are you serious? Do you care just a wee bit about the fate of these Societal failures created by those that can't think, and, in an even larger measure, do not care about what is real for the rest of US?

Although I agree with you on gender and sports teams, I cant help but point out the lack of humanity in your post. The trans community, your "Willie Horton" is the lowest form of politics. I got news for you, how you treat the least of us, is how you will be treated when your time comes. Never forget that my friend. if you believe, you know its true.

Interesting how the "Trans Community" gets a real kick out of beating up on young girls, whose only wish is to participate in the organized sports created for real girls and young women of a biological nature.

If this happened to one of my daughters playing high school sports, I would probably have given these Non Patriot Leftists even more to dislike, about me and my kind, other than that exhibited by my character and fundamental ideals being of such a completely contrary nature.

What father would not defend his daughters when they are treated like societal fodder in these times of extreme DEI Corruption - an abomination of an extreme evil?
