RENO, Nev. (AP) - Two Nevada youth football coaches are facing criminal charges in connection with a bloody fist fight in front of players and parents after a game in northeastern Nevada last year.

Prosecutors filed misdemeanor battery and disturbing the peace charges against 53-year-old Luis Perez and 38-year-old Frank Sanchez last week in West Wendover Justice Court.

The coaches are accused of "chest-bumping" and punching each other during the Oct. 16 midfield fight in the town along the Utah line.

Perez told police he was upset because Sanchez tried to get his bigger players to hurt Perez's quarterback on the final play of the game, but Sanchez denies the allegation.

Perez's team won the game involving 10- to 13-year-old boys.

Both coaches have unlisted phone numbers and couldn't be reached for comment.
