Breaking News: SD Flash advance to NPSL Playoffs.


For those who read our article on the San Diego Flash Pro Soccer Club’s match last Saturday know about the horrible officiating. After the game ended the Storm decided to protest the ruling that negated what looked like the winning goal. This is a statement from the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL). You can read the full statement on the Flash Facebook page:

“It’s the decision of the NPSL Executive Committee that the result from the game, under appeal, will stand. The game will not be replayed nor will the result be overturned. While we’re very disappointed with the poor decision of the officials and plan to sanction these officials from NPSL, NPSL Executive Committee have made the decision that the games result will stand.”

The San Diego Flash will now travel to play Sonoma County Sol this weekend. This is an excerpt from our game recap against FC Santa Clarita:

A major call going against the Storm was called in the 78th minute of the game. The Storm was awarded a penalty kick after a Flash handball in the box. The Storm made the kick but had the goal appeared to negated by an encroachment call.

This ended up being the call of the game. After the game ended I went and asked the officials what happened. A Storm player was assigned to take the PK. In his attempt, he stutter-stepped. At that moment, one of his teammates encroached on the area. This gave the referee the right to disallow the goal.
