Consequently, the disciplinary committee of the Barbados Football Association (BFA) will launch an investigation into a fighting incident during the aftermath of the top of the table clash between Empire and the Barbados Defence Force Sports Programme (BDFSP).

No sooner had referee Jamar Springer blown his whistle to put an end to the match that a heated exchange of words on the touch-line between Empire striker Zinio Harris and BDFSP and national midfielder Omani Leacock escalated into a squabble.
