The Definitive Angle is PRO’s analysis of the week’s Video Review use in NWSL.
Week 14 overview
There was one Video Review during Week 14.
CHI vs SD: Review for goal (offside in APP) – not given
What happened: A goal was scored by Makenzy Doniak (SD) and awarded by the on-field officials.
The VAR analyzed the available angles and determined that Taylor Kornieck (SD) was in an offside position when she headed a cross from the right back across goal, prior to Doniak scoring.
The VAR recommended an on-field review for the offside offense in the APP. After Video Review, the referee disallowed the goal and restarted the match with an indirect free kick.
On-field decision: Goal.
Type of review: No goal – offside in the APP.
Final decision after review: No goal.
Length of review: 2:48.
PRO’s Opinion: This was a good use of the Video Review system to disallow a goal for offside.
