"senior night" is a tradition in US high school sports, where grade 12 kids are called 'seniors".... typically there is a ceremony recognizing the graduating players, and its usually the last home game of the season, so it was almost surely this kids last game anyway.

Its a punk move, but we really dont know the circumstances, and if its anything like what happened to my son his senior season of soccer, I can almost understand it... needless to say in high school sports it isnt always ability that determines playing time, and it can be frustrating to both the kid and the parent
