NISOA Official Decision
Here are the NISOA considerations for tactical foul/breaking up a promising attack:
- What is the distance between the offence and the goal? Division I men, the next phase of play would be a pass to the attacker. Potentially can take one or two extra touches and shot on goal. The distance is about 40-45 yards from goal.
- Does the player have control the ball? YES.
- Can the player gain or regain control of the ball? YES.
- What is the direction of the play? Towards goal.
- How many defenders are involved in the play? Three defenders (2 in front, 1 behind attacker with ball).
- Where are the defenders located? Not including the defender who committed the foul, the two other defenders are five and ten yards away.
- How many attackers are involved in the play? Three attackers.
- Where are the attackers located? The attackers are located about eight and twelve yards away making forward runs.
- How many opportunities to pass the ball were there for the player who suffered the foul? Two opportunities.
- Does the challenge break up a promising attack? YES.
