Fight after soccer game injures Westside student

An 18-year-old Westside High School student was injured Wednesday in a fight that began after a soccer game at Laney Stadium.

The victim's mother said her daughter was kicked several times in the face and head by another player wearing cleats, according to a Richmond County Sheriff's report. She suffered some cuts and bruises to her head.

The incident began after a girl's soccer match between Jefferson County High School and Westside High School. The victim's mother told deputies that there was very rough play during the game and little was being done to stop it by the officials, the report said.

At the end of the game, a fight broke out between the two schools and her daughter was injured.

Richmond County school safety Lt. Richard Roundtree said today that his department wasn't involved in the incident at the soccer match and that discipline issues involving students would be handled administratively.
