General Pattern of Play
UConn generally kept the ball in their forwards as they overpowered their opponent. URI definitely had some inexperienced players on the pitch.

Detailed Report of Incident
UConn took the ball at pace along the touchline as Ms. Gomes caught up with the action. The ball carrier lowered her level to beat her opposing wing; however, Ms. Gomes didn't react to the level change in time. Hence, she made contact around the ball carrier's neck. I was surprised that the ball carrier was alright as Ms. Gomes did not let up in her pursuit. Ms. Gomes was remorseful for her actions and took full responsibility for the infringement.
