Coach Steve Pollack spoke to coach of CARA reaction on the touchline which insinuated that he influenced the decisions of the referee to award penalties.

"First of all the referee is looking at me like in the referee giving the penalties. I am not the referee.

"Don’t say to me that I bribed the referee, if I was to be involved in such act I will not be in the game.
