(Tulsa-AP) -- Athletic administrators at Coweta and Tulsa McLain will forfeit their final football games of the season this week.

The action comes after a bench-clearing brawl between the two teams late in last week's game that was won by Coweta.

Coweta was to play Tulsa Hale on Thursday night, McLain was scheduled to play Tulsa Bishop Kelley on Friday night.

Of the four schools, only Kelley is in the race for a playoff spot and is now assured a post-season berth.

The Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association has accepted the schools' self-imposed discipline.

Executive secretary Danny Rennels says no other discipline will be imposed, but the schools have been placed on warning.
