Some chippiness throughout the contest. After warning, the most of the players calm down.

Detailed Report of Incident
Providence's Scrum Half made an outstanding through the middle of Brown's defense. Mr. McDermott managed to stop the ball carrier; however, he managed to pick the carrier and forced him to land on his shoulder. The ball carrier had a slender build, while Mr. McDermott had a more formidable physique, which caused the nature of the tackle. Mr. McDermott at first did not know what he did; I explained that the tip tackle rule to him and he immediately apologized for his action. Regardless, I needed to issue a card to prevent further dangerous play.
