GAME RECAP

On Thursday night, two of our veteran returning teams RETRO and Skylife matched up. It was our third night of games at the new (to us) Glendale Community College fields, and I’ve been curious to hear about the fields. Alas, nobody has mentioned anything about them, so far. I guess no news is good news?

Meg of the RETRO team sent in a recap, but requested no photo of herself. Instead, I found of picture of her dog Chiez.

Some ultimate was played. Meg doesn’t keep score but someone said it was 13-7 Skylife. People on both teams had applaudable awareness to avoid some “could’ve been” dangerous plays. Man, this is a really long recap for Retro…

FYI – I checked the score on Ultimate Central, and they did in fact enter the final score of 13-7. Either they’re still stuck in LeiOut mode, or the lights went out because games should go to 15.

I’m glad to hear there there weren’t any serious collisions, but I wanted to bring up the Dangerous Play rule since those changed this year with the new 12th edition USAU rules. Here’s an excerpt from the Ultiworld article on the biggest rule changes this year.

While “the vast majority of dangerous play will involve contact between players,” contact is no longer required to call a dangerous play if “there is reasonable certainty that contact would have occurred had the player not taken steps to avoid contact.” For example, if a player aggressively lays out in a way that was certain to create contact if their opponent didn’t actively dodge said contact, it could be called as a dangerous play even if no contact occurs between the players. Dangerous plays are treated as fouls.

    I’ll make a comment about the fields at Glendale CC cause I was there on Wednesday night. Not sure where to park. Some of us parked up on the hill and paid $3 but I heard it was a really long walk (not to mention the uphill downhill thing). Some of us parked on the street near the meters cause they had ended for the day. It was also a bit of a walk, but at least mostly flat.

    The fields themselves are nice. Very good lighting. Apparently they did turn the lights off at 10pm sharp. And fitting in two fields there is VERY narrow. Would be terrible for 7 on 7. It’s doable at 6 on 6, but feels narrow.

    Also, there’s a giant sign on the big scoreboard that says something like it was sponsored by the Hell’s Angels, home of the “Love Ride”. That was interesting.

    My mom is a world class masters sprinter, probably the most successful masters athlete in USATF history. She occasionally trains at GCC and says that the best parking is across the footbridge over Verdugo right where it splits with Canada Blvd. There are meters but she says if you go to the row right on the street, they’re more expensive than the ones a row back from the street. It’s also well lit the whole way and not much of a hill. Just cross the footbridge and go right towards the lights.
    The field is in very good condition. The lighting is excellent. And the guy booted us promptly at 10 on the nose.
