ever had a facsimile of this mom as a parent of a youth group kid?
It’s Sunday afternoon and a semifinal soccer match is dissolving into screaming and shoving. A referee is accosted, a supporter punched, a police officer – who tries to intervene – scratched. Arrests are made and an embarrassed team is withdrawn from the tournament.
Think we’re talking about World Cup play? Not even close. These histrionics took place at an “under-8” match for boys in Pickering on the weekend. The referee? A 14-year-old girl.
Now, an irate soccer mom who disagreed with the girl’s officiating faces assault charges.
