Jefferson boys' soccer beats Lake County 4-1, teams brawl at end of game

Jefferson beats Lake County 4-1, and a brawl ensues at the end of the game.

There was a battle on the field before the actual fight, however. 

Lake County got out to a quick lead in the first half after a beautiful through ball from David Ruiz set up the first goal by Irvin Guaderrama. 

However, the Saints weren't phased and responded with two goals first half goals of their own from Jose Berrocal and Dany Pineda to take a 2-1 lead into halftime. 

Miguel Vargas of Jefferson added a goal in the second half to give his team a little bit of a cushion, and then Berrocal added his second on the day to end any hopes of a Lake County comeback. 

Jefferson went on to win by that same score of 4-1. 

But, despite the impressive Saints win, all the talk from both sides after the game was about the brawl that ended the matchup early.
