Those Raider girls were not edged by Connetquot they were robbed by the refs and dirty play by Connetquot!!!! The Raiders goalie had the ball, Connetquot clearly kicked it out of her hands and then knocked her down preventing her from getting the ball!!!! A field player can not be knocked down like that with out it being a penalty, the goalie gets higher consideration and is supposed to be protected by the refs!!! Section xi should be ashamed of the quality of their officials from this entire season!!!
