DTotD: 12 red cards in kick-happy Brazilian brawl

Dirty Tackle

Votuporanguense beat Fernandopolis 2-1 in a Campeonato Paulista second division (the fourth tier of the Sao Paulo state championship) match that ended with a brawl and 12 red cards. The unrest began when the winning side's striker was taken down by Fernandopolis' goalkeeper on a one v one. The keeper was shown the first red, then everyone got angry.

There were punches and flying kicks that mostly didn't connect, but enough did to cause a few injuries and one Fernandopolis player threatened to file a police report against his opponents/attackers. Once things calmed down, the referee handed out 11 more red cards (including one that looked like it was for a riot cop) before ending the match and ruling Votuporanguense the winners.

This has been the Dirty Tackle of the Day: a chronicling of unfortunate events.
