TAMPA, Fla. – The following is the USL’s discipline report for Week 6 of the 2017 United Soccer League season:
FC Cincinnati forward Andy Craven has been issued a four-game suspension and undisclosed fine for his actions during FCC’s loss to Bethlehem Steel FC this past Saturday. Three games is in accordance with the league-minimum suspension for incidents classified as violent conduct and one additional game is for deliberately targeting the head of Bethlehem’s Santi Moar. Craven will miss all four of Cincinnati’s regular-season matches in May.
Harrisburg City Islanders teammates Abass Mohammed and Brandon Miller have been suspended for one game each and fined an undisclosed amount for their actions during last Saturday’s 1-0 loss at the Pittsburgh Riverhounds. Mohammed was shown two cautions and subsequently was sent off early in the second half. Miller was sent off at the conclusion of the match for abusive language directed toward an official. They will serve their suspension this Saturday at the New York Red Bulls II.
Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC defender Pascal Eboussi was sent off for serious foul play this past Saturday against Seattle Sounders FC 2. He is suspended for one game this Friday against Tulsa Roughnecks FC.
The Rochester Rhinos’ Wal Fall has been suspended by the Independent Disciplinary Panel for one match for an elbow during an aerial challenge against the Charlotte Independence. Fall was cautioned for that offense during the match.
Elsewhere, San Antonio FC assistant coach Andy Thomson was dismissed during SAFC’s Friday match at the Portland Timbers for abusive language toward an official. He is suspended for one game and fined an undisclosed amount. Thomson will not be on the bench this Saturday for San Antonio’s home match against Sacramento Republic FC.
Seattle Sounders FC 2’s Azriel Gonzalez, who was sent off during an April 25 match against San Antonio, served his one-game suspension on Saturday at Colorado Springs.
One player is one caution away from an accumulation suspension as the Portland Timbers 2’s Rennico Clarke has been booked four times this season. A fifth caution would result in a one-game suspension.
