American forward Shanel Harrison’s career at Tapiolan Honka in the Finnish league has ended early following this incident yesterday.
Player who got punched in the face was Niina Laaksonen, who did not return to the game.
Said incident happened with three minutes left in the game with Harrison’s team trailing by six points. Based on the play-by-play this was the culmination of both players going at each other for the whole game – they combined for five fouls against each other before the punch.
Honka today announced that contract with Harrison has been terminated, not even waiting on what disciplinary action will be taken against her by the league who announced she was suspended after that game.
