Brazilian Club Match Turns into Brawl

A recent Brazilian Women’s Club match turned into a full scale fight in the waning seconds. The match between Metodista/São Bernardo – Adasa/Esporte Guarulhos was a televised Brazilian League semifinal. With 24 seconds remaining and Adasa in control of the match fisticuffs ensued. 3 players from each team were ejected and the referees cancelled the remaining 24 seconds of the match due to security concerns. Apparently Adasa’s Coach, Marisa Cecilia Loffredo, who is also a Brazilian National team assistant, was also involved in the fight.

Note: This was no “cat fight” and includes some real fists flying. The video is definitely worth checking out.
