Just curious on a call at our GU17 play-off game in the last 2 mins which rattled our team a bit. Just to give background, our team played short all game with only 10 players with no subs in the heat while the opposing team had a bench with 4 subs. Needlees to say, our team was tired by the last 5 mins of the game and just trying to hold onto their lead. We were playing on our back half and in the last 2 mins, one of our players kicked the ball out to clear it. The ref gave the player a yellow card saying it was excessive. But it took less than 10 secs to retrieve the ball for the throw-in. It took him longer to give the yellow card and fill out the card. Then he added time at the end due to it, but as we were told by the league that no extra time will be added. Anyway, we were up 1-0 with that call it rattled the team a bit and in the last 30 secs, the opposing team ended up tying the game. So we ended up doing PKs and fortunately, we still came out with the win. I know we aren't the only team that tries to run the clock down especially in the last few minutes by kicking the ball out, taking time with throw-ins or subbing but I have never seen a yellow card come out maybe a warning if anything. My question is, was it really necessary for the card?
