Referee leaves match after getting hit in head

Somewhere, men who were shown red cards by Foy are smiling.

Refereeing is hard when you're possibly concussed, and definitely dazed. Just ask Chris Foy.

The referee was clocked in the head by a deflected shot on Saturday and had to come out of the match because of it.

Of course, that happened after a minute and Foy stayed on for more than a half-hour, but whatever. It's not like his health was endangered, or he was possibly incompetent referee. Play on!
