Video: US women’s college player sent-off for double throw-in assault
This bizarre footage comes from a US college match between Amherst and Colby.
With a minute to play and leading 1-0 Amherst were awarded a throw-in. An Amherst player takes through, walloping it off the head of an opponent and straight back out for another throw-in. She appears to wince at this, suggesting the opponent’s head was not the intended target.
But, seemingly figuring she’s found a great way to waste a few seconds while also inflicting mild concussion on an opponent, she attempts to so exactly the same again but with a bit more force.
She again finds the target, but this time the ref decides he’s seen enough and shows her a red card.
