General Pattern of Play
Physical, and open. Both teams used the pack effectively to draw players in, then got it out to the backs who broke off long scores.

Detailed Report of Incident
Play got chippy after the 70th minute, when a Providence player got hit in the air while jumping to receive a kick. I awarded a penalty for the hit, but didn't think it was card worthy. The Providence player, #11 Nigel Fleming thought otherwise. In the 79th minute, Mr. Fleming used his shoulder to charge through the Charles River player who had made the above mentioned hit, who was running with the ball. I awarded a penalty for the offense. On the next phase, Mr. Fleming did the exact same thing to a different Charles River player, and he received a Yellow Card, to end his game a moment early. Charles River chose to run the ball off the penalty, and scored to end the game.

After the game, Mr. Fleming acknowledged his emotions got the better of him and that he shouldn't have retaliated. Especially, considering the game was going to end at the next dead ball.
