Weather and Field Conditions
Great field conditions. Weather was cool and crisp.

General Pattern of Play
The contest featured plenty of chippy behavior, mainly by Greenwich, but West Hartford was guilty of that behavior. The start of the game was filled with high tackling from both sides. I gave warning to both sides regarding the matter; however, the high tackling continued and cards were needed to settle the teams down. After my second card in the 15th minute, things cooled down, but at the start of the 2nd half, chippy behavior returned and the cards came along with it.

Detailed Report of Incident
West Hartford received the opening kickoff of the 2nd half, the tackle Greenwich made was clearly above the shoulders, I played advantage, then a second high tackle was made, I played advantage again. Then Mr. Benda, made a high tackle, the 3rd one by Greenwich within the first minute of the half. A message need to get send to the team; hence, a Yellow Card was necessary to restore order to the game.
