Hockey gets black eye after parents fight

A minor hockey official in North Dakota says police had to be called after a game between two Winnipeg teams led to a brawl between a parent and some coaches.

The fight happened at a tournament last weekend.

Mike Prochnow of the West Fargo Hockey Association says the mother of one young player screamed about a call, then followed the opposing team's coaches into a locker room.

He told Fargo radio station KFGO that when the woman refused to leave, one coach pushed her shoulder, so her husband jumped in with a punch.

Some coaches also sent their fists flying and the husband ended up with a black eye and bloody lip.

Prochnow says the fight happened in front of several players, ages seven and eight.

No charges were laid.
