Courtney Cameron Headshot

Visiting football team Canyon Springs of North Las Vegas had just won Basic High School's homecoming game, 20-15, Friday night in Henderson, Nev., when a fight broke out between players at midfield.

According to The Big Lead, the game was fraught with nearly 300 yards-worth of penalties — the majority of which were meted for personal fouls and unsportsmanlike conduct — and four player ejections.

The brawl between players was broken up by the Henderson Police using pepper spray. According to USA Today, the scene did not result in any arrests.

One spectator shared footage of the incident on Twitter:
