For the Week of 1/28/02
Diane Harper - Colorado Youth Hockey
Harper was injured after taking part in a brawl between parents at an Englewood, Colorado youth hockey game. Harper was cracked in the back of the head after she got involved with other parents after her son was taken out at the knees during a game.

Coach Dave Nilles said the brawl broke out Sunday when players started yelling at each other and parents intervened.

"You have to really understand the sport of hockey to understand the ferocity of parents," Nilles said. "The tensions were very high. "It was a very lively game."

Police said they would determine Monday whether to file charges.

The game was between two teams tied for first place in the Colorado competitive youth hockey league's midget division, for players ages 15 to 17. The game was halted for about a half hour after the brawl. Arvada went on to defeat the Arapahoe County team 4-1.

The issue of parental violence at youth sports received North American attention after Thomas Junta, 44, was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for beating Michael Costin, 40, on July 5, 2000, at a rink. He was sentenced last week to six to 10 years in prison.
