NM Referee Orion Stradford heads to El Paso for PDL match

On Saturday, May 21st, I went to El Paso, TX to center my first PDL match. The game went really well without any issues or major problems. The game was between the Chivas El Paso Patriots vs. the Baton Rouge Capitals. It was an exciting contest from start to finish, with the Chivas able to secure a spot in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open cup with a victory. The fun started early, as I called a PK for Baton Rouge in the 18th minute. The PK was saved and on the restart from the goalkeeper, El Paso went down the other way and was able to score less than a minute later! The rest of the match went very smoothly, I only had to issue 2 cautions to Chivas and 1 to the Capitals, all late on in the game. The final was 1-0 for the Chivas.
