Davis And Morgan Sit Two

Chatham Maroons head coach Mark Davis says he won’t appeal his 2-game suspension.

The suspension is automatic after forward Alex Morgan left the bench during an altercation in Sunday’s game against Leamington. Davis says Morgan was just stepping onto the bench for a line change when captain Michael Verboom took a big hit.

“It was a charge, we’ve got it on tape. He comes all the way from the middle, goes as hard as he can and takes him out,” says Davis. “It was one of those things where any players, when your captain or assistants or whoever gets hit like that, you’re going to respond.”

Davis says he’ll leave it up to his assistant coaches to perform the regular duties behind the bench. Alex Morgan also gets an automatic 2-game suspension.
