Mt. San Antonio (Walnut, Calif.) College lineman Bernard Schirmer punched a referee and appeared to knock him unconscious during an altercation in a junior college game against Ventura (Calif.) College.
Ventura won the game 35-29. Heading into Saturday’s matchup, Mount San Antonio was ranked No. 1 by JCFootball.com and had beat the Pirates in each of the last three seasons, 42-14 in 2013, 27-3 in 2014 and 52-28 last year.
Saturday’s matchup, which featured the state’s No. 1 offense against the state’s No. 1 defense, was obviously a much different outcome.
