Northeastern's better tackling and ball carrying won the day despite their ill discipline -- they committed 4 late tackles on the scrum half with no wrap 2 of which I penalized with yellow cards.

Detailed Report of Incident
Mr. Higginson committed his team's 4th late tackle on the scrum half of URI with no wrap. I yellow carded his teammate, Brett Bragaw on the 2nd one and delivered a stern, hard warning to his captain after the 3rd. When Mr. Higginson committed his foul I felt I sent him off for 10 minutes.
