When the ball is pulled in between Vandersay and Ashen Bandara, who are both attempting to stop it, one of them uses the type of sliding challenge one typically sees in football to take out the other player. As soon as both men are down, the ball slides away to the cushions.

Vandersay is the one who is in difficulty right away since Bandara’s knee got caught in her stomach. Additionally, the volunteers arrived there quickly. Vandersay is moaning in agony and awaiting transfer while Bandara is being carried away on a stretcher. Bandara is conscious while wearing the neck brace.
