RENO, Nev. • Prosecutors will determine whether to file criminal charges against two Nevada youth football coaches of opposing teams who got into a fist fight after a game and bloodied each other's faces.

West Wendover police Sgt. David Wiskerchen says a police report on the fight between Luis Perez and Frank Sanchez on Tuesday night in West Wendover is being submitted to Elko County prosecutors for review.

He says the fight after post-game handshakes apparently stemmed from "some kind of disagreement over a play" during the game between teams of 10- to 13-year-old boys in the Great Basin Youth Football League.

But he didn't have any details of the disagreement.

League head Bob Loncar told the Elko Daily Free Press that both coaches have been permanently dismissed from the league.
