Weather and Field Conditions
Beautiful fall day, Sun and about 65 degrees. Colby's new field was full size and in pristine shape.

General Pattern of Play
a battle of the two top teams in the division and the game certainly did not disappoint. Both teams utilized their skilled backlines which led to some entertaining rugby. Colby defenders were often reckless with their tackles leading to multiple high tackle penalties.

Detailed Report of Incident
A Farmington ball carrier was making a cut through the Colby defense when James reached out his arm to try and tackle the ball carrier and caught him around the neck. The ball carrier was uninjured. This probably would have been a Yellow card on its own, but with the previous high tackles, it was an automatic YC.
