(Source: HockeyDenHaagLeiden) This is a curious play where two players collied, went to the ground and as the ref considered that nobody had ball possession, and that both of them had no intention of hitting each other, he let the play go on.

From the clip you might notice the same and we agree with the ref, as it seems that the players only had the intention of controlling the ball and they just didn’t see each other…

Both teams kept on playing as nothing happened with no further complains to ref, thus accepting the decision of playing on…

Well done ref, we think that is was a good call!
