As part of NISOA’s continuing dedication to college soccer officiating excellence, we are pleased to present another in a series of best practices instruction for our members. In this episode, Miriama “Mina” Kočišová from the Alabama ISOA (Week 3 winner of the 2019 Terry Vaughn NISOA Referee of the Week Presented by Official Sports) describes her decision making on a critical match incident with the goalkeeper handling the ball outside of the penalty area. As many of our matches are played on multi-sport fields, players, especially players from the visiting team may not be aware of the playing field line color which creates a variety of challenges for the match crew.
