SF Cup day 3, the last day

The first match, a U12B match with a district II referee was simple. The older AR Scott was one of those embarrassing older gentleman who has not modernised his skills.

The next match I had the middle, U16 Girls semi-final. I thought as usual it would be a simple match. I was wrong. I had Delana K and Molli as my ARs. Delana is a state referee. She is very good.

These girls were skilled and played hard. They hit harder and harder as the match continued. The head to head contact the second half showed just how hard they were trying.

I had one girl go by and kick at the opponent. A second girl went down on a foul and pushed the other girl off the top of her with her cleats. Not good. But the game ended with Santa Rosa betting Palo Alto 2-1.

There were 3 cautions. Two were tactical again, the player did not get by the defender. The second was for a wreck-less mid field tackle.

This was one of the best matches I had the privilege to referee lately. As good as my CPSA match last weekend.
