NEXT HOME GAME

New this week

Scunthorpe Alphas

This was the first ever home game for the Scunthorpe Alphas. Field was 90 yards with 7 yard end-zones. No 9 yard marks, numbers or limit lines. Team areas incorrectly marked out between the 20 yard lines. The changing room was too small for 7 officials but it was clean with chairs, drinks and snacks had been provided. It would probably be ok for a 4/5 man crew.

END ZONE

PLAY OF THE WEEK:

New this week

Play: Team A’s ball, 3rd and goal from Team B’s 12-yard line. Team A attempt a field goal with a holder and kicker in position to kick the ball. The ball is partially blocked by B74 behind the neutral zone and loops high into the air. It is then caught by A25 in the end zone.


Ruling?

Last week

Play: 1st and 10 from Team B’s 15-yard line. There is less than 1 minute remaining in the fourth quarter and Team A are trailing by 4 points with no timeouts remaining. Quarterback A1 is in shotgun formation and the clock is running. A53 snaps the ball high. A1 leaps into the air, grasps the ball and, while still airborne, throws the ball forwards towards the ground to stop the clock. The ball hits A53 in the back, then bounces on the ground and into the hands of B56 who is kneeling on the ground at Team B’s 17-yard line.


Ruling: 1st and 10 for Team B at the B-17. A1 has never gained possession, so has batted a backwards pass forwards rather than throwing a forward pass. (2-19-2-d, 2-4-3-a, 2-11-3, 2-4-1-a).

MECHANICS:

There are no other players on the press-box side of the formation. A81 goes in motion towards the press box side line and is the widest player at the snap. which official should key on A81?


Answer: The Field Judge should key on the widest player even if he is in motion. (M16-6-1-a).
