Bishop Brossart 2 Campbell County 1


 Share

Recommended Posts

This game was an ugly game, the center ref was terrible. She made a call, then corrected it and did not allow Campbell County get back on defense. Brossart scored on a free kick, she told the Campbell Coaching Staff she made a mistake then she apologized. She should of grew some balls, waived off the free kick and made it happen again on her whistle. She kept telling the coaches that she will never let that happened again as she will remember what impact she played on this game. Next, whoever assigns the referees to games should look at the three refs who did this game, the officials were terrible for both sides. Finally, the parents for both sides were an embarrassment to each team as the alcohol was flowing in a public park. I just hope that all made it home safe. As a bystander, I hope both of these teams meet again in their District and each team gets the respect from their parents and the officials that they deserve.

The game was a very physical game, and when they meet again most likely in the district final and maybe the regional final, they will be physical games as well. There are some very talented players on both sides and these will be very enjoyable games to watch..they were last year too. I just hope they remain physical and clean games...this is a great rivalry.

I will agree with you on the officiating...part of the reason i'm not a big fan of soccer...seems to be too much objectivity in making a call...or allowing a play to continue with so much contact. I am not certain of the free kick you are referring to...my question is when do you have to wait for the refs whistle versus when you see (when there is a foul called) and the team sets the ball down and quickly kicks it? My recollection was that it seemed like a foul was called outside the box, there were no Camels players within the 10-yards or so, and there were no subs and the ball was placed and kicked into play. I've seen that "hurry up" play lots of times in games where i never heard a refs whistle to start play. So i will have to disagree regarding starting the play over, but i dont know the details of that rule.

 

I tend not to like to critic officiating, but i dont know where the sideline ref was on the late corner kick that Brossart had. The Camel defender made an outstanding effort to clear the ball after it got past the goalie, but that ball was a full balls-length in the net.

 

I hope the injury to the Camel player isn't too serious. Physical play, wet field, my view of the play was partially obstructed but i dont think it was a slide tackle. Looked like a play that happens 10-15 times during a game. From my vantage point, i thought they were both going and kicking the ball. Very unfortunate.

 

Now i'll put in my "never will happen" suggestions to clean up soccer across the board....you see it all the time when a team has the lead late in the game...there's delays in substitutions, throw-in's, corner kicks...and fans are yelling at the refs to make them hurry up...why? Make soccer like basketball...1) have a scoreboard with an official on the clock starting and stopping the clock when the ball is in play..shorten the halves to 30-mins. 2) keeping the yellow and red cards in play, but only allow a player 3 fouls then they're out. I've watched high school soccer for 20 years and have always hated how so much frustration builds up during the course of the game.

First things first. I think you, Biggdaddy, are use to other sports and not soccer, which is where some of your questions and comments come from. This is just lack of familiarity I think.

 

Starting from the top. A whistle is required for a few specific restarts like after a goal, a PK and after a card. It is not required after a foul. As to the play in question where the ref admittedly pointed the wrong way, while it is not technically required to have a whistle, every time I ever went to the recert classes for ussf they viamently emphasized giving a whistle out of fairness to all.

 

As to questioning the ball in the net there is almost 0 chance you can see if a ball crosses the goal line into the goal from the stands when it is close.

 

The red and yellow card things need to stay the same, they are tantamount to what makes soccer soccer. Tracking fouls would be an exercise in futility because then you have parents and coaches questioning fouls even more and not just cards.

 

The subs at the end. Is a touchy issue. In college I think they stop the clock for every sub by the winning team when you get under 2 min or something. As far as the rest of the game. That's just part of the game when you allow unlimited subs.

Thanks Bothways. I appreciate the insights and explanations on the rules. I admittedly don't know the details. And when I ask parents on the sidelines about a play (from ones that i think would really know to explain a situation) I always seem to get different answers. I thought the whistle on the restarts after fouls were viewed similarly to throw-ins from the sidelines...where the team with possession hurries up before the defense has a chance to set up...part of keeping the advantage.

 

As to the goal, I will agree 100% with your statement that it is a 0% chance to see a play like that...as well as offsides from a viewpoint from the sidelines. But i will say I was standing less then 20-ft from that end's goal line so I did have a near parallel view of the ball over the line. It was a very athletic play from the Camel defender, so i am not taking anything away from her effort and ability...i was very impressed.

 

My suggestions were pipe-dreams...i wasn't being completely serious. It would take away from the speed and momentum of the game that is soccer.

You're welcome. And to reiterate I was not berating you for your comments. They were presented in a respectful manner.

 

Soccer is a tough transition to anyone that is used to the more "Americanized" sports as it is a less black and white affair.

 

Kudos to you for wanting to learn.

Looking forward to more posts.

Thanks. I took your comments as completely instructional and very informational. I hear it from the stands all the time "no way she was offsides" and things like that and just say to myself "there is no way you could have seen that". Thanks again!

Parents were drinking alcohol at the game? Wow. That is way out of line.
