In Peru, Universitario was trailing its host, Sport Ancash, when with about 30 minutes remaining all the ball boys left the sidelines, forcing players to retrieve the ball by themselves as the
visitors fought to comeback. When Universitario coach Jorge Amado Nunes
spotted one of the ball boys who had retreated, he kicked a ball at him. Officials from both benches then argued
angrily with each other - perhaps over who ordered the ball boy defect - and players engaged in shoving matches. Fans hurled rocks and plastic bottles until the referee abandoned the game in the
77th minute, at which point Sport Ancash had a 3-0 lead.
