Detailed Report of Incident
Umass Lowell's wing raced toward the try line. With five meters left, the Providence full back that was playing cover grabbed the UMass player at the back of his jersey at the neck. In spite of this, the UMass player was able to score. Regardless I whistled play dead and gave UMass a penalty try and issued the Providence player a yellow card for the dangerous tackle.
