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.
