Brawl breaks out at Colorado high school soccer game

High School Soccer Brawl between Jefferson and Lake County

EDGEWATER -- When coaches say players should fight until the very last whistle, they're probably not talking about it in the literal sense.

But that's exactly what happened at a Colorado high school boys soccer game Wednesday night. 

With only about a minute left in a matchup between Jefferson and Lake County, a huge brawl broke out between the two teams that forced the referees to call the game early. 

In total, the referees handed out four red cards--two to each team. 

Coaches and parents ran onto the field at once to break up the scuffle, which lasted roughly a minute with several punches being thrown on both sides. 

Minutes later, the teams still exchanged post-game handshakes after the coaches were able to cool off their players. 

The game ended with Jefferson edging Lake County 4-1.
