Valley Center’s soccer team won its quarterfinal game on Tuesday night, 1-0 over Salina Central. The game was called with 22 minutes remaining because of issues with the weather.
Calling a game in the second half is a rule put in place by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS). It’s akin to calling a baseball game after five innings.
It’s hard for me to wrap my mind around this ruling, but I completely understand it in baseball. What do you think? Do you think that because it’s a state tournament game that the whole game should be played?
