Fiji Vonu surprise Canada Northern Lights but fall just short

This was an exciting game to watch. (I am so thankful that these games were being streamed live. Quality was much improved over 2014! Great work!)
A little bit of controversy at the end. The Canadian "mark" that led to the last point was initially called "touched" by one umpire, but a mark by another. (That should not happen as only one umpire should be in control. I know it does sometimes - I've done it myself.) It looked like the ball had been touched. Amidst all those hands and arms, a clean mark was unlikely.
Overall, the umpiring has been good. (Waiting for the all-American umpires game.) One could say a Canadian win was the "correct" outcome, but a draw would have been better.
