Two Good Calls: South China v Sun Hei

The following occurred during the Division One league match between South China and Sun Hei on Tuesday 2 February 2010 at Hong Kong Stadium. Attendance was 1,557.

The score is 2-1 in South China’s favour, but Sun Hei are in the ascendancy. Having gone 2-0 down in the first half, Sun Hei started the second half brightly and missed several good opportunities until they made it 2-1. Sun Hei continued to press, as the following video clip shows:

For Sun Hei's second goal (at 1:35), the AR correctly spotted that the ball had crossed the goal line between the posts and under the crossbar. HKRef can see good teamwork and good officiating.

At 2:27, the Referee cautions South China forward (#33 Leonardo) for kicking the ball after the whistle has been blown for offside. The Referee nicely but firmly shows the yellow card; this is good officiating.

At 2-2, the match is nicely poised for an entertaining final 20 minutes. But a penalty decision in the 77th minute is as good as it gets.
