for six games for separate post-game incidents he
was involved in at Toyota Field after Saturday's 3-2 loss to Minnesota United FC.
Scorpions forward Esteban Bayona
was suspended for two games and
United striker Pablo Campos
, who played for San Antonio in 2012, was handed a one-game suspension.
According to reports, Harmse hit Campos in the
groin and punched Minnesota trainer Tom Smith
after the game was decided on a stoppage-time goal, the second straight game winless San Antonio lost in stoppage
"Kevin Harmse's conduct following the game was unacceptable and the league is holding him accountable for his actions, and supplemental discipline from our organization will be
forthcoming," said Scorpions President and General Manager Howard Cornfield
in a statement. "We believe that Esteban Bayona's penalty was excessive when
compared to the other disciplinary measures handed out, or in this case, not handed out, and we have vehemently expressed our unhappiness to the league office."
United president Nick Rogers
also express disappoint in Campos' suspension.
“We believe Pablo reacted in a natural way," Rogers said in a statement, "and should not
receive any disciplinary action for simply protecting himself."
