Chapel Hill, NC - Friday morning Crest school leaders reported the team had used an ineligible player.

The announcement forced the cancellation of the semi-final 4-A playoff game.

According to the North Carolina High School Athletic Association regulations Crest will also have to forfeit any games for which the ineligible player dressed as well as revenues and awards accrued during postseason play.

"This is a most unfortunate matter and we are deeply sorry about Crest's inadvertent use of an ineligible player," said NCHSAA executive director Charlie Adams.

Grimsley High School will now advance to the December 10th state championship game at Carter-Finley Stadium.

Use of an ineligible player carries a fine of $500, but the NCHSAA says the fine will be reduced to half because the violation was self-reported.

"We certainly commend Crest for the professional manner in which it has dealt with this difficult situation."
