Here's a WSP story that's sports related. The local hockey team, the Knoxville Ice Bears, champions of the SPHL, met the Fayetteville FireAntz in Knoxville late last week. There's been bad blood between the two teams all year, but it erupted on Saturday evening.
The League suspended 7 players and 2 coaches.
Here's the story from the Ice Bears' website.
Our local paper, the Knoxville News Sentinel, carried a few stories about it.
The local Fayetteville paper, the Fayetteville Observer, also ran a story.
The two teams face each other this weekend in the first round of the playoffs.
Yep. We're so proud.
