During a Saturday night USports matchup between the Acadia Axemen and St. FX X-Men, the two AUS rivals let their emotions get the best of them when a major brawl broke out mid-way through the final period.
In what was a potential first-round playoff match-up the Axemen were able to defeat the X-Men 6-3.
But the biggest takeaway from the game was the brawl that broke that resulted in both coaches being ejected, 13 total players and a total of 310 penalty minutes assessed.
A 10-minute misconduct issued to Anthony Difruscia just over five minutes into the period seemed to set the tone. After Acadia's Liam Maaskant scored to give the Axemen a 4-2 lead, some stick work prior to the draw ignited what turned into a slugfest that spilled over into Acadia's bench.

As per the USports playing regulations, any player that receives a 10-minute fighting major is ejected from the game and handed a one-game suspension.
The third-period penalty summary of the shenanigans speaks for itself.
The game had to be delayed for approximately 20 minutes as the refs sorted out the penalties.
