2017 CHSAA Boys Soccer Longmont at Standley Lake

The Standley Lake Gators were hungry going into Wednesdays CHSAA soccer game against Longmont at the NAAC in Arvada, Colorado. The game started out pretty tame, with the Gators dominating the offense, but once they got on the board, things in the game changed.

A bunch of yellow cards and a lot of complaining took away from what could have been a good game. Also, both side officials had issues that did not help the situation. One could not call an offsides correctly to save his life. As an example, when there are three defenders between the goal and an offensive player, and a long pass is made, and the ball bounces before the offensive player gets past the last defender, he is onside, by about a mile. As for the other side official, the ball touching the line is not out. These officials really made it hard on the main official, who dealt with a brunt of the frustration from the players and coaches.

Lake went on to win 3-1, but Longmont had their opportunities and could easily of been a goal closer or even have earned a draw. Longmont has some big boots on their team.

2017 CHSAA Boys Soccer Longmont at Golden

This was my worst soccer game. Something happened with my charger that instead of charging my batteries, they were discharging them. I finally got one battery charged to about 90 percent before I had to leave for the game between Longmont and the Golden Demons…for some reason, Longmont, which is not close by, was the home team.

The game went fine. No cards. Both teams seemed to be listening to officials and not pushing their luck. Golden went on a scoring spree and won the game 4-1, with Longmont getting their only goal late in the game.

But the air was smoky from the forrest fires in Washington, Idaho, and Montana, and I was not feeling well. I got home and was pretty sick, and I am feeling it today. At least I have today to work in the condo, no local home games for me to worry about today.

Here are my shots from the game. To view and purchase more, visit MaxPreps.
