BH-BL girls soccer sees yellow in loss to Shen

It was a wild afternoon for the Spartans against their rival Shenendehowa in a week one Suburban Council/Saratoga County girls soccer showdown.

Hits, misses, a hip toss, an almost tear-away jersey were some of the bright moments, but two yellow cards issued to Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake for jewelry were surprising, shocking and maybe to some on the Spartan sidelines...questionable.

After a physical tangle in their own end, Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake's Amanda Malone wasn't issued a yellow card for her tangle with Shenendehowa's Sarah Bassett that sent her in a horizontal spin to the ground, but for an earring in her upper lobe.

With the score tied in the second half and a foul called on the Spartans adjacent to the goal box, Burnt Hills goalie Emily McNutt received a yellow card for a necklace. She was sent off and the Spartans, without a back-up goalie, had to replace her with a field player. Guess what happened next...gggoooooaaaaallllll!!

BH-BL's day didn't get any better when its coach, Brian Bold, received a yellow for asking for clarification about a substitution entry into the contest that he wanted to call back. It may have been payback for giving the referees an earful earlier for a non-foul call when one of his players went down and it took time before they whistled for a stoppage of play.

The NYSPHSAA does not allow any type of jewelryto be worn on the playing field or in practice. A waiver was just passed for wrist watches for cross country runners.

Burnt Hills lost, 2-1, and the re-match should be worth the price of admission at Shen October 13 on the new turf field.
