THE chance for a Brighton Seahawks player to kick 100 goals for the season last weekend ended when the game was abandoned after a brawl broke out in the third quarter.

On its Facebook page the Brighton Seahawks Senior Football Club said the match was being investigated by the Metro Football League and it was helping with the investigation and would not be making any comments to media outlets or other clubs. 

WA Police said officers attended the game but team managers managed to calm the situation down and no complaint was made.

Last week Brighton Seahawks had reached out to supporters encouraging them to help celebrate Zach Gryszan become the first player in club history to reach 100 games having been part of the inaugural side back in 2014.

The club had also been hoping the game against the Balga Bombers at Kingsbridge Reserve in Butler, would be where Jordan Pearcey would kick 100 goals for the season.

The weekend he celebrated his 50th game with the Brighton Seahawks he had scored 97 goals from 14 games this season.

Metro Football League was contacted for comment.
