DTotD: Borchers kicks ball off Feilhaber’s face, gets inexplicable red

Brooks Peck

Sunday's match between Salt Lake and New England included more than its share of unfortunate refereeing that influenced the game right from the beginning. In just the third minute, Salt Lake defender Nat Borchers tried to catch Benny Feilhaber as he made a break off a booming goal kick and when he did reach him inside the box, his attempt to clear went off Feilhaber's face and out over the endline.

Though Borchers did this without making contact, the referee still sent him off and gave New England a penalty kick anyway. The game eventually ended in a 3-3 draw and prompted Salt Lake manager Jason Kreis to do this creepy thing where he pointed to his eye.
