What were the mechanics of how the AR signaled a goal?
Agreed, the guys have to start fast and rev it up even faster...the team has enough very good players to go full-speed for 90 minutes!

I personally did not see the AR signal the goal as I was too intent on yelling at the ref for waving it off, but I was told by a former ref that the AR raised his flag and immediately turned and ran toward the center of the pitch. However, I was told today the AR said he was "out of position" to make the call, and perhaps because he was standing on the ground instead of up above the play as those of us in the Pilot Club enclosure were, it was too difficult to see.

For those of us standing above the play...the goal was obvious.

Standing on the ground should not impair the view. If he is in the ideal position, he is standing right behind the corner flag looking down the goal line. If he can see "daylight" between the ball and the back of the goal frame, it's a goal. If not, no goal. It's possible, but unlikely, that a player would obstruct the view. "Out of position" presumably means that he is upfield some distance, which is inevitable because prior to the shot he should be even with the next-to-last defender and he can never react/run as fast as the ball. Only if the next-to-last defender is near the goal line will be have a good position. It looks on the replay as though there is a defender about two yards in front of the GK, so he really should have been in a good position. In any case, he certainly had a better angle than the referee.

At this level, referees are (or at least used to be) assessed on every game. The assessor may well come down hard on him if he overruled an AR in a better position and changed the call in an incorrect way that affected the outcome of the game. It's hard to imagine a more grievous error.

Remember, beginning with the men's soccer game against UCSD tomorrow, Monday September 6, and continuing until further notice at all UP sporting events, fans must prove they are vaccinated or show proof of a negative COVID test within the past 72 hours before they are admitted.

Masks are always required except when eating and drinking!

Remember, although the Pilot Club will not be serving food or drinks at tonight’s game, when visiting the Pilot Club, you can get a food and beverage voucher and a token for beer.

Apparently the Pilots should always begin the first half going toward the south goal as it paid off last night.

Having an abbreviated season last year, it seems even the sophomores and juniors are taking time to round into form and it is frustrating that the young guys are not converting their chances, but having all freshman up top means they are getting experience.  Hey, as I recall, even Benji was shutout his first six games as a Pilot.

Big test and an opportunity to truly evaluate the team on the road against UCLA on Friday, but the young team's target has to be October 2 when they visit Moraga for the WCC opener.

(Took advantage of the Pilot Club food and drink voucher last night...dang, those concession stand hot dogs are mighty tasty!) Shocked

It WAS a big test, and fun to see the Pilots come out aggressive and stay aggressive throughout the game and seeing sophomore Kevin Bonilla score his first career goal in the Pilots 1-0 win over UCLA in LA.

As fun as it may have been to see UP stay aggressive, it was the Pilots' defense that was most impressive as they seemed to survive set piece after set piece and a flurry of shots from the Bruins toward the end.

"Started fast and hung-on" is too easy a description of tonight's 1-0 win, but it sure seems it is a developing trend for UP...

The Pilots had some brilliant moments on offense, and although the Sacramento St. goalkeeper was credited with only one save, it seemed there were at least 3, but it also seemed there was a lot of dribbling instead of shooting by UP.

Onward!

I’m dissapointed there was no write-up about UP perking up in the second half and Seattle’s back line getting roasted for the winning score in the Coffee Cup.

You failed to mention that to the fan's delight, it was a DRY roasted Caffé D'Arte Coffee Cup. rimshot

Considering how much players were slipping on the watered pitch, I had no grounds.

After a VERY disappointing 1-0 OT loss to a mediocre CSUN team on Monday the Pilots (5-3) get a chance to make amends against #3 UW (6-0) tonight at Merlo Field in their biggest test of the season so far.  UW has scored 15 goals in their 6 matches this season, while the young Pilots have scored just 8 in their 8 matches.

The Pilot Club will be full-on ready with food and drink, but if you are unable to attend, the match will also be televised on KRCW.

This will be the first Pilot sporting event aired on Portland's CW station. I am told KRCW can be found on channel 32/1032 on CenturyLink, Dish and DirectTV and on channels 3/503/703 on Frontier.  I found the CW on 3, 703, and 1032 on Xfinity.
