Potiguar beat local Baraúnas 2-1 in a lower league derby, however the scoreline was only the second most interesting fact after the eight red cards in the game.

According to reports trouble flared up on the pitch after Potiguar took the lead, at which point the football pitch transformed into royal rumble. Players attacked each other with punches and flying kicks, and as a result eight players – four from each side – were sent off.
