The referees who officiated a hockey game in Hague, Saskatchewan are standing pat on their decision to cancel the game, because of the behaviour from fans.
The January 26th game was between the home team and the Prince Albert Bantam Hurricanes.
Kyle Chudyk says the fans and coaches of the Hurricanes were verbally abusive throughout the game and felt it was no longer safe.
His officiating partner, Michael Schwebius echoed the same points.
However fans and staff of the Prince Albert Bantam Hurricanes hockey team disagree with the decision.
Jason Roode, whose son plays for the Hurricanes, says he didn’t hear any cursing or threats at all.
Manager of the hockey club Glen Cey also said he didn’t hear any swearing from the crowd or head coach Bill Hoko, who was thrown out of the game in the second period.
The Saskatchewan Hockey Association suspended Chudyk and Schwebuis, for shutting down the game.
