Congratulations to the Hoos! Watching the replay, however, I have to say that seems like a poor call on the penalty and a regrettable way to decide a well-played match, especially in the 88th minute. UVa's striker drilled a ball directly at the High Point defender at close range who, if anything, appears to be attempting to withdraw his arm, not extend it. In my opinion, inadvertent contact would seem to have been the proper call, especially as the play occurred in the closing moments.
