Referee Punched
Mourners carry the casket of Ricardo Portillo during funeral service at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church Wednesday, May 8, 2013, in Salt Lake City. People attended funeral services to honor a Utah soccer referee who was punched by a player and later died after a weeklong coma. Portillo died Saturday, a week after police say a 17-year-old player struck him in the head during a recreational league soccer game after the referee called a penalty against him.
