The WPIAL Executive Committee has requested information from five people with ties to Tuesday night's Brashear-at-Canon-McMillan boys soccer match that ended in a forfeit.

That information is due to the WPIAL by Monday, at which time the committee will “review the information and decide where we're going to go with it,” said Jim Collins, the assistant to executive director Tim O'Malley.

O'Malley was out of the office and unable to be reached.

The WPIAL requested information from City League athletic director Mike Gavlik; Guy Montecalvo, who's the athletic director at Canon-McMillan; and the three game officials.

Brashear boys soccer coach Abby Phillips pulled her team off the field 14 minutes, 27 seconds into Tuesday night's Section 5-AAA game, saying that at least one official “did not know the rules of soccer.”

Canon-McMillan led, 4-0, at the time.

Several players from Brashear were given yellow cards, including one on Phillips for a player wearing earrings.

Phillips accused Canon-McMillan's players of making derogatory comments at members of Brashear's team, a claim that Canon-McMillan vehemently denies.
