Punches were thrown during the first round of the SEC women’s soccer tournament between Ole Miss and LSU on Sunday. 

At the 104th minute of the match with no one finding the back of the net yet, when the Tigers’ Maya Gordon was met at the ball by the Rebels’ Ramsey Davis on the far sideline. 

While Gordon was trying to shield Davis from the ball, things got heated quickly and tempers spilled over into violence.

Both players began throwing punches at each other, which caused both benches to pour onto the field to break it up. The Tigers’ Rammie Noel went to defend her teammate and dragged Davis to the ground before she had to be separated from her as well. 

All three players involved were given red cards by the referee and were ejected from the game.

The game would eventually be decided by penalty shots, where the No. 10-seeded Rebels won and move on in the tournament while the No. 7 Tigers were eliminated.

Now the Rebels will be taking on No. 2 South Carolina in the quarterfinals on Tuesday. But they will be without Davis, who has to serve a one-game suspension. 

Gordon and Noel also won’t be able to begin NCAA play on Nov. 11 when the Tigers play again.
