Thrown punches in the LSU-Ole Miss women’s soccer game at the SEC Tournament
Punches were thrown during the first round of the SEC Women’s Soccer Tournament between Ole Miss and LSU on Sunday.
In the 104th minute of the game, no one had yet found the back of the net, when the Tigers’ Maya Gordon was met with the ball by the Rebels’ Ramsey Davis on the far sideline.
As Gordon tried to shield Davis from the ball, things quickly heated up and tempers turned to violence.

Both players started punching each other which caused both benches to spill onto the pitch to break it up. Rammie Noel of the Tigers went to defend her teammate and dragged Davis to the ground before she also had to be separated from her.
All three players involved received red cards from the referee and were sent off from the game.

The game would ultimately be decided by a penalty shootout, where the No. 10-seeded Rebels won and continued in the tournament while the No. 7 Tigers were eliminated.
Now, the Rebels will face No. 2 South Carolina in the quarterfinals on Tuesday. But they will be without Davis, who is serving a one-game suspension.
Gordon and Noel also won’t be able to start playing in the NCAA on Nov. 11 when the Tigers play again.
