Fight Erupts During TJC Scrimmage

What was meant to be a simple scrimmage between two teams turned into chaos Saturday afternoon when the TJC Apaches met Ranger.

At the end of of a play an all out brawl began.

There was punching, kicking, and some players were visibly stomped. No word on what exactly started the fight.

 Athletic officials said there were other minor skirmishes in the game before the big brawl.

Officials said one player was taken to be examined as a precautionary measure. His face mask was grabbed, he was flung down and suffered a neck injury but is expected to be okay.

Because it was a scrimmage there is not expected to be reprimands for the teams. However, TJC officials said the team will review film and if any of their players crossed the line there will be penalties.
