PLAYERS: Alex Morgan

Via Bob's Blitz:

Alex Morgan is finally having an effect on kids. Unfortunately it was on East High (Utah) player Petiola Manu (No. 12 in white) -- who decided to knee downed Woods Cross High School player Makenzie Clark (No. 12 in blue). No red card despite the fact that that move is even banned in MMA.

Manu apologized yesterday: "I let my emotions get the best of me and I took it too far. And I just want to apologize to her and everyone. I'm sorry. I'm so sorry," Manu added. "It was a physical game and I let my emotions get the best of me. It was nothing personal. I was just really frustrated with the game. I wasn't thinking. I was just running on adrenaline, and the game was tied at the time." Manu also complained that Clark guarded her closer than she's ever been guarded before.

Those damn frustrating tie games.

The Utah High School Athletic Association is investigating. 

Not the first time this has happened in high school girls soccer, nor will it be the last.
