I guess what I'm asking is what would you have done if you were those refs, and does anyone think that they as a ref could have prevented this?????
Since we weren't there, all we can go by is the information provided, and from Ref-X's original and follow up posts, it doesn't appear that there was any identifiable precursor to what happened.

B1 simply lost it, committed the intentional foul & was correctly penalized by the officials. The only additional thing they could have done was to toss both A1 & B1 for their subsequent conduct, but that's a judgement call on their part as to whether the conduct was flagrant.

The reactions by the adults were way out of line, but I don't see what the officials could have done to prevent them.
