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
In open play, Mr. Camoa made a great ball carry, however, he was held up by West Hartford's defense. As he was trying to free himself from the tackle, he swung his elbow in a swimming motion, which ended up hitting a player in the face. The contact was enough to knock the ball down, but not enough to injure him. In a vacuum, the play would only be a yellow due to the unintended nature, but this was Mr. Camoa's 2nd Card of the contest, which yielded an automatic Red Card.
