I said earlier that there was one Bucknell player down at that end and he was so far away from the net that if he was the closest guy to the ball, then it had to be a pass. That was sort of right. Let me 'splain.
Pay no attention to the white spot between the red circle and the UVA defender below and to the right of it, because that is his stick. I think, but I don't know for sure, that those are Prevas and McWilliams, and for the sake of simplicity let's assume I'm right.
- This was clearly a shot, not a pass.
- The closest guy to where the ball likely went out of bounds is McWilliams, or the player that I think is McWilliams. Assuming it did in fact go through the red circle, that's utterly indisputable.
- The Bucknell players are positioned so that if anyone wants to dispute where the ball went out and suggest they were closer, then the referees couldn't possibly rule that a shot.
