    I checked the Menacesoccer.com website. All it had was playing June 1 at Sueno FC!

    A partner specific bad story to go with my good weekend at Adult Regional Championships.

    I'm AR1 on a men's open division. Late in the first half, there is a fast ball over the top on the far sideline with the 2LD close to midfield. I take off to keep up with play and slam into the coach whom was on the touch line for the first time all game. I tried to grab with my right hand and his shirt ripped out of my fingers. My first conscious thought was, "F***! I'm out of position!" Based on the feeling on the back of my head, the coach is lucky he didn't end up with a broken nose. The coach then sat down on the bench for the rest of the half instead of standing at it.

    My friend was 4O on the adjacent field and happened to be addressing the technical area behind me. Some quotes from him telling the story. "[Dayton Ref] literally sat his ass down!" "I looked over and the coach is on his ass and [Dayton Ref] is 2 yards onto the field from bouncing off and starting to run again."

    I was fine. I know it wasn't my fault, but I feel bad. The man looked to be 70 and he might've broken something.

    Hopefully he broke his habit of standing on the touchline

    My western NY wife says it that way. She's such a hick.
