and I guess lindale and lawless did nothing. innocent as always. I doubt it. I cant believe athens just acted like thugs and all people associated with lindales team were angels. doesnt make sense to me.
toohot...just stay out of it. You were not there so just shut up.
For everybody who keeps wanting to make something out of this....
The refs called the match for both teams. Every Tuesday and Friday night they go out and call the matches all over the state and do their best. I was standing not more than 20 feet from the takedown that lead to the PK. Athens player charged in and took Lindale player off his feet in the box. CLEARLY a foul. Goal scoring opportunity...questionable. Could have been a card if it was. I talked to the referee after the game and he is a well respected ref who has called for DECADES...he knows his game. Athens goalie made a great stop.
As far as the game winning goal goes...nobody was robbed. Its easy for the ball to bounce off of poles and cross the line completely. I seen it happen before. But regardless....the referee ruled it a goal so it is. End of story.
For any kid to treat a coach the way Lawless was treated is abhorrable. I do believe the UIL should be called in because they did break the rules. Laws of the Game do not allow for that type of behavior. Cussing is a card during the match and threatening a coach, referee and opponents players is technically assault. The entire team should be written up.
I dont care if its harsh but they wont act that way again if they are punished.
