General Pattern of Play
Both sides had some streaks of chippiness, but they both followed my commands when the match was about to get out of hand.

Detailed Report of Incident
A Coast Guard player carried the ball at top speed until a WPI defender slowed his progress. Mr. Gikas performed a tackle that was above the shoulders and forced the Coast Guard player to land hard his shoulder, which forced an injury. I determined that the tackle was incidental, which is why a Yellow Card issued instead of a Red Card. The Coast Guard captain was satisfied with the sanction.
