News

On December 4, the MISL Board of Governors approved video review of three-point goals. The decision states: "Referees will be able to use the reviews to determine the position of the ball in relation to the 3-point arc when the ball was struck. Reviews will not be used to determine if the ball crossed the goal line." The first game the new system was available was the December 6 game between the Pennsylvania Roar and the Rochester Lancers.[4]
