KU Fans Tear Down Goal Post After Royals Win

KSAL StaffNovember 3, 2015

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP)– Authorities in Lawrence say a crowd caused thousands of dollars in damage when they took down a football goal post at the University of Kansas after the Kansas City Royals’ World Series win.

A crowd broke the lock to a gate at Memorial Stadium, took down a goal post and threw it into a lake late Sunday after the Royals’ beat the Mets in the World Series.

The goal post had been replaced inside the stadium Monday.

University police Capt. James Anguiano says the department is investigating the incident, which led to about $10,500 in damage. He estimates several hundred people were involved in the incident.

Jim Marchiony, the university’s associate athletic director, says university officials are disappointed the celebration involved vandalism.
