SOCCER FIGHT BREAKS OUT IN BRAZIL AND DUDES START NINJA KICKING EACH OTHER
A striker is taken down by a goalie in a Brazilian contest, and then things get really crazy. Votuporanguense beat Fernandopolis 2-1 in a Brazilian fourth division match that ended with a brawl and 12 red cards. The unrest began when the winning side's striker was taken down by Fernandopolis' goalkeeper on a one vs. one.
The keeper was shown the first red, then everyone got angry. There were punches and flying kicks that mostly didn't connect, but enough did to cause a few injuries and one Fernandopolis player threatened to file a police report against his opponents/attackers. Once things calmed down, the referee handed out 11 more red cards (including one that looked like it was for a riot cop) before ending the match and ruling Votuporanguense the winners.
