The defender was suspended for one match, and the loss of Cascante meant that Austin FC was playing with one less player. Austin FC ultimately ended up losing that match, 1-0.
That was Austin FC's second straight loss on the road.
Josh Wolff, head coach, said the red card was questionable. Wolff also maintained that a red card should have been given to Real Salt Lake for a foul that injured Austin FC designated player Sebastian Driussi.
"The [Cascante] red card is not a red card," head coach Josh Wolff said post-match. "One, I think he's offside before the play happens. So I mean, what they're doing and what they're looking at I have no idea, but I think it was really laughable. The second part is when Sebastián [Driussi] gets fouled like he does in the second half, and it's our DP. And the guy comes through, he knows exactly what he's doing. It's a red card. There's absolutely no excuse for not seeing that and calling it. I think it's absolutely ridiculous."
Per MLS, the league’s independent review panel “unanimously rescinded” Cascante’s one-match suspension, but did not elaborate.
Now, Cascante is eligible to play against Vancouver Wednesday night at an Austin FC home game at Q2 Stadium.
