FARMERS BRANCH (AP) - One player suffered a broken jaw during a fight in the final minutes of a state championship hockey game in Farmers Branch.

A disciplinary hearing is set for Tuesday by the Texas Amateur Hockey Association over the brawl between Keller Hockey Varsity and Arlington Martin Warrior Varsity players.

Two youths face suspension from club play over Sunday's fight during the game in Farmers Branch, in a brawl captured on videotape.

Keller won the Silver Division championship 9-3.

Arlington player Jeff SoRelle has a broken left jaw and suffered a concussion.

Keller school district spokesman Bryce Nieman says the team involves players from the district's four high schools but is not sanctioned by the school district or the University Interscholastic League. The same applies to the Arlington team.
