You-Call-It #56


In the dying moments of a tied match where the teams knew that KFTPM would be required to determine a winner, a blue team player is hurt and hobbles off the pitch to receive treatment during the continuous play. The referee whistles the match over, noting the blue team only had ten players and asks the blue team what happened? The blue team states their player has injured his leg and was only off seeking treatment. The referee asks if he can continue or do we reduce to equate? The player seems to want to resume his place at the centre circle with the others, the coaches prefer he does not but he ignores them and returns to the FOP as part of the 11 team members. To the amazement of all, the two teams are tied after ten shots apiece . The red team had missed their 11th shot so the 11th blue player was our injured blue player who is limping badly, now collapses claiming he is not able too continue, so the best blue pk kicker who had already shot now steps up and buries the pk shot wining the match.
Should the referee allow this or should the 11th miss by red be discounted given there was no chance to reduce to equate?

Need a hint?
