So you might be wondering why the ref and the goalie were so fired up, right? Well…
Yahoo – Because they’re brothers – the ref was Ramon Sterkens and the goalie was Michael Sterkens, 24 – and the man being assaulted was their father. The game was called with 13 minutes left in the third period and with Eindhoven winning, 5-1.
Can you imagine? One second you’re ref’ing a 17 year old’s hockey game, the next moment your dad is fighting two guys in the stands. Pretty sure if the ref got free, it would have been game over for the guy who was putting his dad in the choke hold. Guy was FIRED UP.
