GS - Boonville JV game

Question

Game played at Boonville tonight.  With GS up 19-0 at the end of the 1st quarter, the ref continued not to stop the clock after 1st downs.  Starting in the 2nd quarter he signaled the clock to run through change of possessions.  After a series in the 2nd quarter, he ran it on penalties and then on incompletions.  GS scored at the end of the 2nd quarter to make it 34-0 at half.  The second half he treated it as the mercy rule and ran it the clock through out of bounds and incompletions.  He even yelled "Really" at the GS crowd for complaining.  Boonville's clock operator told GS's video guy that this ref does this at every game he does at Boonville.  These kids rode a bus 40 minutes and only get to play 6 games this season due to CoVid.  Let them play full games the way the rules are intended.  If this ref doesn't want to be out there then he should quit.  This isn't making either team better.

should not be an IHSAA licensed referee.

I can understand being upset, as would I, but please do not mention the name of someone on here.

This is unacceptable for the crew to do as it does not follow the rules, and it does rob the kids of gaining experience.

With that being said, was this something that was agreed on by the coaches due to injuries on one side and the tournament looming? I have no clue, but if not this was handled incorrectly. Just please dont mention individual names.

If you don't mention names...how does it EVER get corrected.  And no it wasn't agreed upon by the coaches.  GS has plenty of players and Boonville is a 4A school.  An official should never take it upon himself to change the rules of the game.

Perhaps a moderator could excise the officials’ name from that first post.

You are correct that this is not something an official can take upon himself, and impose on the teams without their agreement. The proper recourse is to report this to Asst. Commissioner Faulkens at the IHSAA, as opposed to calling out the official by name on a public forum.

Kevin Woolsey should not be an IHSAA licensed referee.  

Felt bad for the kids. They were trying to get to the line as fast as possible after each play. Definitely not the way they wanted to end their last game of the season with an officiating crew that shouldn’t be allowed on a field again. You nailed your post💯!!

This is the LAST place to turn to if you are looking for this to be corrected. It is the AD's responsibility to lodge a formal complaint with an official's name.
