Two balls better than one for Helsinki

[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] FC Haka players and its coach were fuming after getting scored on by HJK Helsinki with two balls on the field in a Finnish first division game.

Two ball boys each tossed a ball to two different HJK for throw-ins. One of the balls reached midfielder Juho Makela, whose goal made it 2-1.

The ref let the goal stand and Haka ended up settling for a 2-2 tie.

    The referee did the right thing. Not letting the goal stand would have been worse. The players distracted by the 2nd ball on the field had no impact on the play (and could not have, even had the 2nd ball never been put on the field).
