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.
