89′- Harriel crosses a ball into the box and it is pushed out by the goalie for a corner. The kick amounted to nothing.

79′- Flach is coming on here to replace McGlynn.

71′- Getting chippy here in the final twenty minutes after a hard foul by Martinez. The bunch of players swarm together and the refs get in the middle of it to separate the players.


69′- Play is stopped as a dog runs onto the field and was able to grab a hold of the ball with no challenge from any player.

65′- Lowe mistimes his challenge for the ball and earns a yellow for the hard challenge.
