Brothers report assault during Burton soccer game

Two brothers reported Thursday they were assaulted during a soccer game near Sammie Lane in Burton on Sunday, according to the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.

The brothers, ages 24 and 34, said they were assaulted by members of the opposing team and believed the dispute was fueled by alcohol and a cultural clash between Mexican and Honduran players.

The brothers were not seriously injured, the Sheriff's Office said.
