Detailed Report of Incident
Maccabi's was advancing in the attack and managed to get the ball out to the wing and were advancing down field with little defensive pressure. The breakaway run got past New London's wing and the drifting #5 (Sklanka) managed to get within tackling distance. The Tackle started high, stayed high, and eventually was completed all with #5's arm around the neck of the Maccabi player. I whistled immediately, stopped the clock, took names and issued a YC for the offense. The whole team knew the potential outcome the second I blew the whistle and they were collectively petitioning me "that they'd handle it." Unfortunately it was not the first high tackle offense in the match, and a card was necessary considering the level of play and that there was no attempt to move the tackle to a lower position or to release the ball carrier. The overall result was there were very few high tackles observed throughout the remainder of the match. The YC did not effect the overall outcome of this match. The offending player did show remorse and apologized to the the ball carrier.
