SSC coach files charges vs Red Lions after brawl

MANILA, Philippines — San Sebastian volleyball coach Roger Gorayeb has filed charges of physical injuries following a brawl Friday that involved the NCAA men’s champion team San Beda in the women’s volleyball tournament yesterday at the San Beda gym.

The riot—which allegedly started when a San Sebastian men’s volleyball player insulted San Beda’s American cager Ola Adeogun with racial slurs—disrupted the match between the Lady Stags and the Perpetual Help Lady Altas.

“He can do what he wants,” San Beda coach Frankie Lim said of Gorayeb in a TV interview. “I did not start the fight. I was there to fix it. He threw cuss words at me and punched me.”

Gorayeb said, however, that the Stags were only chanting during the warm-ups and did not insult Adeogun.

The San Beda men’s basketball team just finished their training before the volleyball games started in the same gym.

Both camps had different versions on who started and what happened during the melee, but Gorayeb ended up sustaining the most injuries with contusions on his face and body.

Gorayeb had secured a medical certificate from the Jose Rizal Memorial Hospital before filing charges against Lim and the Red Lions.

“I was already down on the floor but they still kept on kicking me,” Gorayeb said in Filipino, noting that aside from Lim, some members of San Beda’s basketball team ganged up on him.

Gorayeb said that several Lady Stags who tried to shield him during the brawl also got hit, including libero Mae Denise Crisostomo, who was punched in the face.

“I pity the girls, they were just trying to protect me,” said Gorayeb.

The NCAA Management Committee is expected to issue sanctions on the coaches and players involved in the incident.

“We can’t let this pass because this is not good for the league,” said San Sebastian athletic moderator Frank Gusi.

    “several Lady Stags who tried to shield him during the brawl also got hit, including libero Mae Denise Crisostomo, who was punched in the face.”
    I don’t think this is true. ACCIDENTALLY GOT HIT. On the other hand, you guys won’t be hit unless you did something which will hurt or otherwise, go beyond the lines. These guys are just protecting their team mates so as you on your parts. 

    and MR. RAM TORRES: 

    “Visitors should be treated with respect or should they not return the favor.. at least be more of a pacific person” 

    VISITORS SHOULD ALSO SHOW RESPECT. 

    NO TO DISCRIMINATION. NO TO RACIAL SLURS. WE STAND NOT TO TAKE MORE ABUSE FROM ANYONE. ”Pity SAN BEDA. ALL SHAME ON YOU SAN BEDA RED LIONS.”

    PITY ON YOURSELVES TOO.

    I was there. I saw. I heard. and witnessed.

    Coach Frankie Lim Is a stupid LIAR. His statement was all too full of lies. It was him who first shouted slurs and well the other shouted back, Then his men all ganged him up AND THE GIRL who ran and help stop the melee. What a shame. Visitors should be treated with respect or should they not return the favor.. at least be more of a pacific person.

    Pity SAN BEDA. ALL SHAME ON YOU SAN BEDA RED LIONS.

    It was a shame I even went there to watch and visit how feels like to be at SBC. All thoughts of being called CHAMPIONS vanished. Champions don’t act as such. Especially to a visitor.

    And that’s what separate GREEN and BLUE from the RED.
