On May 9th the Jr. Jags played the Titans, and unfortunately did not win. The action in this game included more than just what was happening on the field.

The Titans won the game 1-0; the only goal was made in the first half of the game.

It was a pretty windy evening during the game, so when junior Evelyn Gutierrez was asked how the players might feel while playing, she said, “It is really windy out here and it’s definitely harder to play because they have to make more of an effort to pass the ball.”

Around the end of the first half, one of the refs called a penalty on one of the Jags. The coach got upset due to the fact that the ref was so far away- ‘how could he even see what happened?’ The ref argued back that he was standing at a better angle to see what was happening, unlike the other ref. The ref then let the coach know if he had one more outburst, the game was over.

Not that much later, another penalty was called on a different Jag, by the other ref. One of the parents started to argue with him. After he tried to get the mother to just sit down, he said he was done with the game. The parent, Bianca, realized he was about ready to call off the rest of the game so she got up to apologize. When asked if he deserved an apology in her opinion she said, “Honestly, no. I wanted to show good sportsmanship so I knew it was what had to be done.” She was also asked about how she felt about the refs approach to her outburst. She said, “Well first of all the coach couldn’t say anything anymore so I felt it necessary. As a referee, he should be able to see what is going on, and be fair about it. This is his job and he should learn to be fair.”

Evelyn was asked about how she felt about the two situations with the refs and said, “The refs were kind of harsh and they could have had a nicer approach when talking to the coach and the parent.”
