Rule changes in soccer require injured goalkeepers to leave game
from High School OT
The National Federation of State High School Associations Soccer Rules Committee approved two rules changes during its Jan. 27-29 meeting in Indianapolis. The recommended rules changes were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors. The committee approved a requirement that a goalkeeper must leave the field when he or she is injured and the referee has stopped the clock. This decision was made in order to minimize the risk of further injury.
