An alumnus brought a cannon to a college football game in Maine. A ref was sent to the hospital.

CASTINE, Maine (AP) — A referee who was hit within the face by a cannon blast throughout a Maine Maritime Academy soccer sport is recovering from his accidents.

The referee was taken to a hospital with nonlife-threatening accidents Saturday.

The Hancock County Sheriff’s Department advised WCSH-TV that an academy alumnus introduced the cannon to the sport in Castine. The alumnus reportedly loaded the cannon with black powder and a substance that had been made right into a wad.

It is custom for a cannon to be fired with a clean shotgun shell when the academy scores.
