MCA throw in. CL clears. MCA 10 going up for the ball, a little bit of a pushing as they were jumping for it, then after the ball was already away the CL defender goes down. Red card to MCA 10! I didn't see the contact, but evidently it was violent conduct.
MCA 7 cross from the left. 5 heads it toward goal, gets wiped out by a defender challenging for the ball. No bad intent at all from the CL defender, but she got there late and that's a foul anywhere else on the pitch. MCA ends up with a corner, nothing comes from it.
MCA 7 dribbles into the box, loses the ball as she tries to go through two defenders. Goes down, MCA fans are livid. No call. Ref stops play for her as she stays down. Drop ball.
CL gets possession, player gets fouled as they look to counter, goes down but advantage played. Then ref stops as the CL player stays down. Another drop ball, and as with the first, both teams contesting it. Coaches getting testy. I hope the 4th official is getting hazard pay.
Things getting chippy on the pitch. CL 13 gets a yellow. Ref points as if it's for persistent infringement. Might've been a bit for dissent too. She was getting grabbed by MCA 7 who was retaliating after getting bumped a few too many times.
