Referee hit by a large stone during Boca Unidos v Gimnasia La Plata

Referee Mariano Gonzalez became the centre of attention during the Argentine second division clash between Boca Unidos and Gimnasia La Plata on Monday.

After sending off Boca Unidos’ Matias Moises early in the second half, a large stone/small rock was thrown from the stand at Gonzalez who went down.

Gonzalez duly got up (not on the video below) and referee the rest of the match, ironically sending off two Gimnasia La Plata players as they away side held on for a 1-0 win.
