League officials in Rhode Island are investigating a fight between members of two girls' high school soccer teams who threw punches, pulled hair and sparked a brawl in the bleachers.

The fight captured on video by WPRI-TV broke out Sunday with about a minute left in a match between Woonsocket and Tolman high schools.

Woonsocket was leading 5-0 when two players collided, setting off the fray.

Fans fought in the bleachers during an awards ceremony.

Woonsocket coach Kathleen Fagnant says she doesn't know how the fight started but says she isn't going to "take the fall for that."

Rough play has already made a video sensation of New Mexico player Elizabeth Lambert.

She was suspended Friday after grabbing a BYU player's ponytail and slamming her to the ground.
