Coaches show they're good sports

As a result, Deptford was ready to insert freshman forward Amber Scott at keeper, and while Scott is a talented keeper, the move would have weakened the Spartans by removing Scott from the offensive attack.
By the time Franchi reached the sideline it was determined she was ready to re-enter the game. But since she was taken off the field, she was not eligible to return until Deptford had a possession during a stoppage of play.
Rather than take advantage of a weakened opponent, Williamstown coach Dan Torcasio instructed Braves' midfielder Shea Levi to kick the ball out of bounds on the restart, which would allow Franchi to return to net.
