A brawl between Ole Miss-LSU women’s footballers ended in three ejections in Sunday’s SEC Tournament game.
The on-field incident happened in double overtime when LSU’s Maya Gordon and Ole Miss’s Ramsey Davis got tangled chasing the ball near the sideline.
Davis, a junior, appeared to grab Gordon, who is a senior, by the waist before the two players exchanged punches. A referee attempted to separate the two as the fight escalated, with players and coaches from both teams rushing to defuse the situation.
LSU’s Rammie Noel, who is also a senior, then rushed to the scene and allegedly grabbed Davis by the hair, pulling her to the ground.
Gordon can be seen on the sidelines in tears after the altercation. Meanwhile, Davis was seen talking to her teammates as she stared at her ponytail.
Davis, Gordon and Noel received red cards and were ejected from the game. All three players would have received a one-game suspension.
Ole Miss took the game out 3-0 in a shootout. LSU and Ole Miss have yet to address the situation publicly.
Ole Miss will face South Carolina on Tuesday in the second round of the conference tournament.
