The Taunton High School hockey team lost a 9-1 decision to King Phillip and then their assistant coach lost his cool. William C. Kenney was upset over an icing call and confronted the referee following the post-game handshake line, according to a report in Thursday's Boston Globe.

The Tigers dropped to 3-5-1 on the season following Wednesday's loss, but the story will forever be about the assistant coach who chest-bumped, bit and shoved an official over an icing call.
