Well... I suppose if the ball was crossed in high toward the 18, the defense pulled out a bit and the ball was re-entered behind the defenders...

The first yellow to the bench was complaining about a foul called against DU on a corner. The complaint (which is totally legitimate) is that the whistle blew before the kick was taken. Fouls cannot occur when the ball is out of play, so the only choices for the referee were to issue a card (he had warned players a few seconds before) or let it go until the ball is in play. But it appeared that he called the foul. It's possible that the whistle sounded a split second after the ball was played, but I don't think so (and neither did the coach).

The red to the assistant came on a throw-in call of all things. The referee said that the ball deflected off a DU player and gave the throw to UP.

The coaches had nothing whatever to complain about since only about 5 of 25 possible fouls were called against DU.

I thought he had a legitimate beef on that second call that got him the red card. From where I was sitting I didn't see any DU player touch the ball. But I agree that they really had no business complaining about the officiating. The Pilots got by far the worse treatment from the official on the field.

I think the whistle was simultaneous with the kick, but I had my eyes directly on Kelsey because it was obvious the ref was going to call the foul on any more contact after the warning. He had the whistle in his mouth and was ready for the call. I'm not sure he was in any mood to be argued out of it. It was almost like he thought the girl was dissing him. The word "niggly" comes to mind, the same phrase Graham Hays used in describing Carly Paine in the BYU New Mexico game, I think the refs are sending a message they are done with gamesmanship for the year.

there is that little clause in the manual about the ref being the sole determinator of the facts on the field....Razz

On the straight red, I think the head coach body language made it look like he thought though he was going to the locker room, but the ref went right past him to the assistant.

Did the referee tell you to stop pushing and shoving? What did you do after that? Ohhhhh.....right....then STHU.

I think Denver played better than the final would indicate. They would not be out of place in the WCC.

Did you see the look on Taylor's face after that ball went in? Priceless.

I'm going on Sunday, but I did catch the game on the feed.

I was very impressed with the Freshmen. Brooke was a spark with her assist and the long shot. Kendall very good and Klier with her over runs.

I thought Brooke's run into the box and assist was the play of the night.

taylor's goal was a thing of beauty!!, the mens team was sitting nearby an one of them said it was the best goal he has seen all season. now i realize they dont get to see every womens game, but it was, a thing of beauty! taylor was about 23 yards outside the box just off the right and sent a curving rocket into the upper left corner. the keeper had know chance. as stated earlier, taylor's reaction was priceless, like she was almost embarrassed it went in.

great win for the girls. they looked good. they were patient an everyone got to play, except clohee which makes me wonder. are we redshirting her??

Cloee could redshirt as long as she doesn't step on the field again this year. I have no idea if she's over her stress fracture or fit to play.

Kassi can't. for one thing, a season ending injury must be in the first half of the season. She played tonight.

I think Kelsey's two saves were the plays of the night ... in addition to Taylor's assist ... and her goal ... and ....

And, I think Oregon State's win against Ohio State tonight, at Ohio State, is the upset of the Tournament so far.

Agreed on the saves

That first save Kelsey made was phenomenal after a very dangerous counterattack, that second one was just a great reaction (and we definitely got a little lucky it was within her range)

all i can think of is sophie saying how she hates to go up against kelsey in practice because you can't help but strike the ball at her because she is so i
intimadating.
that first save, if it had gotten by kelsey, very well could have changed the complection of this game. it was the first quality strike of the game and an incredible save by kelsey!

That first save was definitely highlight reel (what's the new term for reel since it's all digital now?) material and I hope we get to see when the Pilots put theirs up on Youtube.

The Denver coach had already gotten a yellow card for saying something after a call was made on a corner kick.

Whatever came from the bench...it was shouted out! Both cards came when the ref was WAY OVER on the other side of the pitch! He took a long stroll across the pitch each time. Who says Refs are deaf? Selective hearing, I guess? Red Card!

GO PILOTS...BEAT THE HUSKIES!!!

I'd say the cause of the Denver assistant coach's outburst was frustration: frustration at being dominated, being shut out, being held to 2 shots on goal, and having no chance to succeed. The game is for the players not some sideshow on the bench. At the start of the 2nd half, when the Pilots came out a bit flat and Denver had some possession going on for maybe 5 minutes, Garrett Smith showed his displeasure and concern by merely standing up. For him to even rise during a game must send a signal to his team to get their act together. Given a choice of a screaming complainer or someone who lets his team handle their own business on the pitch, I'll choose Smith's method. And I'd note that Garrett went over and spent some time after the game talking to the Denver coach in what appeared to be a calm conversation for both of them.

Though it wasn't captured on the Channel 2 KATU highlight of the assist last night...Taylor's fancy moves in the box "broke the ankles" of 2 defenders! She did some crossover move with a spin and turned for the cross...both defenders bit hard and fell around her! That was SWEET! Dani finished Taylor's cross...back of the net baby!

I think Taylor was feeling pretty good about herself, eh? She clocked out her timecard...with that nice shot from the corner of the box. Nice job last night Taylor! cheers

Coach Smith looks like a genius for putting Taylor in when he did. When we look back and rank this freshman class in terms of their careers, we may need to recall this night when Taylor broke thru for her first goal and a beauty of an assist. Having two frosh midfielders scoring tournament goals is a huge bonus for a veteran team. (No one player can replace Michelle E., but the team can still carry on with performances like this.)

Taylor's reaction was priceless after her rocket of a goal: Covering her face as if in disbelief, showing humility and joy at once, smiling ... wow! Great game, great promise of more to come.

Was Sophie's deflection on the first goal a back-heel? It looked like it, and it looked like a world-class difficult shot.

When I saw it live on video Friday night, it looked like a back-heel to me.

On the replay, there are players in the way, so you can't tell for sure. But with the direction the ball went in the goal, it almost had to be a back-heel or inner right foot/heel.

It was a brilliant goal. Masterful.
