WINTHROP, Mass. -- The parents of a high school girls' hockey team in Massachusetts were crying foul after a man supporting an opposing team shone a laser beam into their daughters' eyes while on the ice.
The offender, who officials later said was an estranged relative of one of the home Winthrop players, was ejected and barred from future sporting events after directing the green laser at Medway-Ashland players during the varsity matchup.
Medway-Ashland parents claim Winthrop's 3-1 comeback win Wednesday night was invalid because of the laser drama, myFOXboston reported Friday.
They said the light had been seen throughout the Division I state preliminary game, but became more prominent in the third period -- in which all four goals were scored, led by Medway-Ashland's opener.

When veteran referee Jerry McLaughlin skated onto the ice Tuesday night at Thaler Sports Center in Mound, he knew the game would be unlike any he had ever experienced.
McLaughlin and his two officiating partners met before the game with Hutchinson and Mound-Westonka team captains for longer than usual, reminding them they would draw five-minute major penalties for checking from behind, boarding and head contact.
During the game, McLaughlin analyzed open-ice hits more thoroughly, in fractions of a second. He called one penalty for checking from behind, although not exactly the type of headfirst crash into the boards that hurt Jack Jablonski. Hutchinson scored two goals to tie the score, drawing gripes from a Mound-Westonka assistant coach that continued to the postgame handshake between the teams.
