Schoolgirl, 13, remains destroyed after overly netball referee gives referee points extra points because she wore the wrong color KNICKERS
- The teenager from Perth made a mistake because of wearing the wrong shorts in a junior netball game
- The match ended in a draw, but the other team was named the winner by officials
- The mother expressed her anger about what happened to her daughter Grace
- Says daughter was left humiliated about the incident that cost her side a draw
A teenager was left humiliated after a netball official punished her team for wearing the wrong colored underpants.
Her mother went to social media to publicly express her indignation after her daughter had been selected at an association game under 13 in the suburbs at the weekend.
The match ended in a draw, but the win was awarded to the other team because the girl was wearing black and white underpants instead of the required solid black.
& # 39; I have decided to write this because of my daughter's humiliation, and I don't want a child to be as ashamed of my daughter, & # 39; said the woman on Facebook.

She insisted that her daughter's underwear was barely visible and that her daughter was being tackled & # 39; by the other team manager who brought the matter to the attention of the officials.
& # 39; You couldn't see them, I scored, sitting in front and in the middle, so unless she had bent over, they weren't visible, & # 39; wrote the woman.
& # 39; They also didn't see the conveners themselves, so the witch hunt found out who the girl with the different underwear / shorts was. & # 39;
The woman chose not to mention the name of the teams involved, but raised awareness about her daughter's ordeal in the hope that it would not happen to another child.

& # 39; Netball is a fun, light-hearted sport that revolves around teamwork, and for an adult to deliberately choose a child, just to win a game that completely ignores sportiness, it is small and has made me disgusting , & # 39; she said.
& # 39; Don't get me wrong, rules are rules, but the culture of the game is completely destroyed when adults try to take the children down. & # 39;
Friends who responded to the post were also furious.
& # 39; This is so pathetic. How humiliating for mercy … I can only imagine how angry she was and how angry you are that another adult did, & someone wrote.
Another added: & # 39; I don't understand, how does underwear influence the game? & # 39;

The mother had filed a formal complaint with the northern suburb association concerned and asked for explanation and apologies.
& # 39; The spirit of the game must remain intact between the children & # 39 ;, she said The Western Australian.
The association told the publication that it could not comment because it had not yet been notified of a complaint or incident.

The association's policies and guidelines on its website state that players must wear black underpants and that uniform infractions result in a penalty with two goals for the offending team.
The newest junior sports debacle in Western Australia took place days after a young football team was fired from a chance for a premiership because its players are too good.
The West Australian Football Commission stripped South Coogee Junior Football Club & Division 39 after another South Coogee JFC team in the same age group last week, but a lower division did not win a match.
The harsh punishment means that every team playing against the South Coogee A team will automatically be awarded a win in the remaining six games.
