MIAA upholds Natick win over Plymouth South

The Natick football team will not be penalized by the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association for using an unauthorized ball in Tuesday night’s Division 2A playoff game — a 38-33 win over Plymouth South at Braintree High.

Citing inclement weather conditions, the back judge granted Natick permission before the game to use a Wilson GST ball, a brand the majority of high school teams use during the regular season. The official was not aware that MIAA tournament rules require teams to use the Spalding J5V. During the game, each team supplies the ball for its own offense.
