Soccer • Racing Santander players boycotted their Copa del Rey quarterfinal against Real Sociedad on Thursday to protest unpaid wages.
The third-tier team refused to play after the opening whistle at El Sardinero Stadium because the Spanish club's president, Angel Lavin, and his board did not resign. Santander's players lined up near the midfield stripe, and the referee called off the game after one minute.
Sociedad kicked the ball around before shooting it into the stands. Spectators showed their support for the players by chanting: "Don't play!"
