A giant hockey brawl broke out on Sunday between the Omaha Mavericks and the Alaska Nanooks of NCAA, and footage of the fight has gone viral.
The Mavericks defeated the Nanooks 3-2 in overtime. The brawl actually started when the teams shook hands post-game. Twitter user @spomer_hky shared footage of the handshake line and the brawl that ensued.
The two teams also faced off on Friday night, with Alaska winning 3-2 in overtime. According to @spomer_hky, the beef started on Friday when Nanooks players celebrated in front of the Mavericks’ bench.
Tyler Weiss of Omaha scored the game-winner on Sunday night to help his team to victory and even the mini two-game series.
According to the game’s box score, misconducts were handed out to Anton Rubstov (Alaska), Brayden Nicholetts (Alaska), Arvils Bergmanis (Alaska), Weiss, Michael Abgrall (Omaha and Jack Randl (Omaha).
