Teenage Girl Stabs 5 During Brawl After High School Football Game

Investigators were searching Saturday for a teenage girl they say stabbed five others during a melee that ensued after a high school football game in southeast Florida.

None of the injuries are life threatening.

The incident occurred near the main entrance of Martin County High School around 9:30 p.m. Friday after a game against rival South Fork High School, Sheriff's spokeswoman Rhonda Irons said.

The girls' wounds were in the leg, shoulder, forearm and hand. One person involved was Tasered by a deputy. The girls stabbed were taken to a hospital.

Another person was bitten by a police dog and one woman was arrested in a series of unrelated fights that involved around 30 people outside the school, Irons said.

Detectives believe that a rivalry existed between those involved in the stabbings. South Fork beat Martin County 35-10 in the annual game nicknamed the "Martin Bowl."
