1. Division 1. Sporting SC. APPEAL DENIED - The match is awarded to Zum Schneider FC by a forfeit score of 3:0. The fine, however, has been reduced in half to $100, payable to Zum Schneider FC. The rationale for the decision is that despite the fact that Sporting SC plays on a New York City field, the putting up of the nets still needs to be to the satisfaction of the Referee. Goal installation should be done promptly as soon as the field is available as equipment, supplies and manpower needs to be at the ready to minimize any impact to the game start time. As it relates to the reduction from the standard fine, we do acknowledge that aspects of these fields are not entirely within control of the Home Team.
2. Division 1 Reserve. NY Greek Americans Reserve. APPEAL DENIED - The decision of the Arbiter is upheld and the match remains awarded to NY Shamrock SC Reserve by a 3:0 score. Also, $80 payment to the Referee and $100 payment to NY Shamrock Reserve remain in place. There was insufficient evidence provided to overturn the Referee's statements contained in the referee report.
3. Division 2. Richmond County. The match stands as decided by the Arbiter...match to be replayed. However, the suspension of Mohamed Maussa Ndao is reduced from 4 matches to 2 matches and the fine is reduced from $200 to $100. In the end, the referee report is still the overriding factor in any Appeals Board decision, despite video evidence that may be presented. However, the evidence presented suggests that a reduction in the penalties imposed is warranted.
