Justin-Siena wins again, article posted
The Justin-Siena Braves improved to 3-0 with a rout of Piner Friday night at Dodd Stadium in Napa, Calif.
A link to my article has been posted on the “Justin-Siena football 2012” page.
The Braves had to battle not only the other team, but the officials as well. The first half was excellent, but they let the game get out of control in the second.
A late hit was called against the Braves when the d-line was pushed into Piner’s quarterback, but when the Piner line started piling onto the player after the whistle there was no foul.
It wasn’t the only time they missed a personal foul, either. There was also an illegal cut block on a blitzing linebacker. Cut blocks are legal in one-on-one battles between down linemen, but nowhere else. They are dangerous because of the potential for serious knee injuries.
I would love to be giving these officials praise because they were great for 90 percent of the game, but unfortunately the 10 percent they weren’t was irresponsible.
