Obstruction

This would and should be expected to be obstruction. The Red Defender (24) after the ball in near the board...attempts to come in for a legal block tackle which is kicked out of the way by the attacker. Just because the attacker has her back toward the defender does not mean that the defender is tackling from behind. As you can see the defender is in position first before the attacker moves forward.
