NHFS Rules Book

NFHS Rules Myth vs Fact

Myth: The referee can only stop the clock for goals, yellow/red cards, injuries, and penalty kicks. The referee has no discretion to stop the clock for anything else.

Fact: The referee has discretion to stop the clock for any reason he/she deems necessary. This might include situations where it is taking excessive time to retrieve a ball, to explain a call to a coach or player, to handle an escalating situation between players/teams, to remove a disruptive spectator, to consult with an assistant referee, etc.
