(WJLA) - A high school football team in Texas got beaten so badly last week that a parent of one of the opposing players actually filed a bullying complaint against the other team.

According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Western Hills High School in Fort Worth was on the losing end of a 91-0 shellacking at the hands of nearby Aledo High School last week. It was nothing new for Western Hills; they've beaten their opponents by an average score of 77 points per game thus far this season.

The volume of the loss was too much for one Western Hills parent, though, who according to the Star-Telegram, filed an official report of bullying through the school district's website.

What more, Aledo's principal is now required to investigate and file a report.

"It's not something you can laugh off or anything like that," Aledo High head coach Tim Buchanan told the Star-Telegram. "What they said was that I should've told my players to ease up and not play so hard."

According to the latest USA Today High School Football rankings, Aledo is the #6 team in Texas going into this week's games.

The report says that Aledo won despite Western Hills pulling its starters after just 21 plays.
