See it while you still can -- video of the incredible ending of the Texas high school hockey championship up in Dallas.

(Yes, they have high school hockey here. It's a club sport, not part of the UIL.)

Keller beat a team from Arlington 9-3, and as the final buzzer sounded things got out of hand. two incredibly cheap shots were dished out, several fights broke out, and parents screamed encouragement instead of trying to stop things.

A concussion and a broken jaw resulted.

The clip was up on YouTube but was taken down; Deadspin has an unembeddable version, so click here to see.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
