40 nine years old in huge brawl
Here the ice transforms into a battleground.
The match was over, teams were shaking hands.
Then a huge fight broke out.
No, 9-years old boys.
This strange, to say the least, scene took place in Kazakhstan, between teams from Burabya and Astana. The game was over, Astana had won 5-3 and the teams were standing at the centre line to thank each other for a good match.
But suddenly emotions burst.
A player of the victorious Astana said something mocking that got the team Burabay to heat up. One of the Burabay players didn’t hesitate to throw the gloves off when a Astana player challenged him to a fight and suddenly the tumult was a fact.
About 40 hot-blooded 9-years old were in full swing while the judge and adult leaders made their way onto the ice to calm down the atmosphere.
When the dust was settled, the fighters were strangely enough hailed with whistles and applauses from the audience.
