The school, in a Boston-suburb, is known to have many Jewish students. Its team was playing against Catholic Memorial School, from West Roxbury, whose fans yelled the anti-Semitic canard, after Newton's diehards shouted at fans from the all-boys school: "Where are your girls?"
Newton Superintendent David Fleishman said of the Catholic kids' response that he "found it chilling."
The president of Catholic Memorial later apologized in a statement for the "abhorrent behavior" of the students.
