Watch apparent Minnesota high school rivals Totino Grace and Prairie Seeds become embroiled in an enormous ruckus involving players, staff and fans.
Prairie Seeds won the game 2-1 and will progress to the state tournament, but the match quickly descended into violence.
Channel 12 News reports:
Channel 12 Sports video of the game at Maple Grove’s High School stadium shows multiple punches thrown between opposing teammates after Prairie Seeds Academy’s 2-1 victory. The video also shows Totino-Grace’s soccer coach getting a punch to the head by the Prairie Seeds Academy goalie as the coach tried to separate the feuding players.
At least one Totino-Grace player was injured in the fight and required stitches. Maple Grove Police Captain Keith Terlinden says it’s too early to tell whether criminal charges will result.
“It’s an active investigation, we’re still trying to get all the facts surrounding it” said Terlinden. “Depending on the severity of the injuries is depending on what we would charge.”
