General Pattern of Play
A competitive contest with high tackles performed by both squads, however, NLC accounted for 70% of the infringements. After the two cards, things settled down for awhile, but tempers flared again with 10 minutes left in the match. After talking to both captains, the teams claimed down and played a clean conclusion.

Detailed Report of Incident
For the first half, both teams were guilty of high tackles. After an initial warning, Springfield cleaned up their act; NLC did not. The second half started off with another high tackle that forced Springfield's #10 to take an injury timeout. The play would have been a Yellow Card, but I could not get a number, but I warned NLC's captain that the next high tackle would be Yellow. Ten minutes into the second half, a Springfield forward ducked a tackle, but Mr. Carter managed to hook his arm around the carrier's neck as they both hit the ground. Believe it or not, Mr. Carter was the one who needed time as he hit the ground a little hard. However, after repeated warnings to his team, Mr. Carter was the unfortunate member who had to pay his teammates' past sins.
