Prince George's County Co-Supervisor of Athletics Chuck Brown said yesterday an investigation is being conducted into an incident between the Oxon Hill and Bowie football teams at halftime of their Maryland Class AA state quarterfinal game at Friendly Monday night.

According to Brown, the Bowie team inadvertently went to the wrong locker room at the beginning of the game. At halftime, the team went back to the same locker room, unaware it was in the wrong area. When Oxon Hill came in for intermission to the locker room it had been assigned, it was met by the Bowie team.

"I heard there might have been some foul language used and there are rumors that a Bowie player and coach were struck by an Oxon Hill player as the Bowie team was leaving," Brown said. "Even if there was a conflict as to which team used which locker room, there was no reason for any problems. Whatever happened, it won't be passed over."

"I have met with Edward Felegy {county schools deputy superintendent} and we have scheduled everyone concerned for an interview this week," said Brown, who attended the game but said he didn't see the incident.

Oxon Hill Coach Mike Pearson said he had been interviewed this week but declined comment. Bowie Principal John Hagan and Coach Gary Wrenn were unavailable yesterday.

There were no incidents on the field involving the players or coaches during the game. Bowie won, 9-6.
