Stillwater prep soccer player flipped the bird to a referee

After being ejected, he decided to flip the bird to the official.

Well, this was the furthest thing from sportsmanship.

During the Class 2A boys' state soccer championships between the Stillwater Ponies and the Wayzata Trojans at U.S. Bank Stadium, Stillwater senior Jorge Malon received a second yellow card, which resulted in an ejection.

As Malon walked off the field, he decided to flip the referee his middle finger, according to photojournalist Aaron Lavinsky of the Star Tribune (see the picture of the moment here).

John Millea, who covers high school sports for the Minnesota State High School League, called it the worst thing he's seen in years.

Stillwater's head coach Jake Smothers told MNSoccerHub that he's disappointed in his actions. “He has to answer to the high school league, his family, his team and ultimately himself,” said Smothers.

Wayzata ended up winning the championship game by a score of 2-0.
