Who's won all the pies?? IS IT YOU???

Everybody loves pies, especially Pukka Pies judging on the response in the October competition..

31 of you got the question right, and the draw has been done with numbers 7, 18 and 23 being pulled by the postees on the match thread.

The question was:
The ball is cleared from the goal area (6 yard box) to an attacker who, from the edge of the penalty area, immediately shoots for goal.

The ball hits the referee who is standing just outside the corner of the goal area and is deflected into the goal. The ball, in the opinion of the referee, was going wide. Does the referee
a - award the goal
or does he disallow the goal and restart play with:
b - a dropped ball
c - a goal kick
d - a corner kick

Answer is A
Reason is that the referee is considered to be part of the field of play, just like a corner flag post, goal post or crossbar. If the ball rebounds off a goal post, say, than play continues. And so, if the ball hits the referee, play continues. The ball went into the goal so a goal is awarded.
