But moving the hearing to Friday could allow the tournament to begin — with or without Wright City — as it is now scheduled with the quarterfinals. The semifinals and championship have been moved to Saturday.

Dickerson said Wright City coach Kyle Butler will be in attendance at the hearing, while the team remains in Yukon waiting for the results.

Butler admits to making the mistake, but is asking that he be punished instead of the players.

“There's nothing to hide,” he said. “I'll be the first one to admit and take the blame for this situation, but again I am trying to fight for my kids, and if I don't fight for my kids, I wouldn't be doing my job.

“This was something that they had no control over and it's an honest mistake, and the OSSAA has recognized that in the past and I hope that they take that into account.”
