South American Soccer Match Ends With On-Field Fracas, Two Players Red-Carded

Colón defeated River Plate 3–1 on aggregate to advance in the Copa Sudamericana on Tuesday night, but not before some late-game drama.

Two players were shown red cards in stoppage time as an on-field fight broke out on the pitch. One Colón player was pushed by a River Plate member before being bulldozed by another as the fracas ensued.
