Entry for June 30, 2008 – Opps, forgot to blog last Saturday’s wine tasting

2008/06/30

Wonderful event last Saturday at Byington winery in Santa Cruz.

Went to Santa Cruz for a wine tasting tour and lunch with 20 of Edie and Randy’s close friends.

I liked the first wine best, a Sauvignon Blank wine. Nice tour.

Firehouse in Sunnyvale makes a great beer hall meal.

The atmosphere is a little routy. But everyone is enjoying themselfs and we had really good service.

Sunday games with Jamie P (was AR2 on yesterday’s problem AR1 match) and Michael G a fine young youth referee. Did display a yellow for PI in this match in the 16th minute. Third foul on the same attacking play. Nice match though on the U14G.

Entry for June 22, 2008 – National Cup in Ripon U16 Boys good match

2008/06/22

Saturday games with Michael B. He did a great job towering over everyone. It was great to work with him on a competitive match again.

I did shout out a number for a caution. He said there will be no shouting on this field. He was right, I learned by lesson for next time.

Saturday games, Roy S from Redding was the center on this U16 Ladies match. Bill H helped out. Roy has a lot of fun when he referees and the match went really well. No discipline, no problems.

Entry for June 15, 2008 – U16 boys – it was a good match

2008/06/15

Worked with Brandon and Joe Myatt.

The match opens within seconds the tallest player on the field goes up, and the defender pushes him off axis. Tweet, I saw it!

It was a good match (felt like I was doing a solo). There is the attacking player going down in the box. I think, should I caution him for a dive or not. Wait, there is the AR waving his flag for a foul, shit. Wave the AR down and we continue playing, not a good start in the 10th minute.

There it was the 25th minute, attacker runs square into the keeper who had easily had the ball long before the contact. I look, say yup, that’s a caution. Wait, the only other caution of the match was to that same player. Humm. I take my time. OK, yes it is a second caution.

The team with 10 players who was behind – came back and won the match. Very good play.
