Breckenridge father/son duo chosen to referee state soccer
November 28, 2012
Kim McGahey and his son, Conor McGahey, were chosen among 400 statewide high school soccer referees, coaches and athletic directors to referee the recent 4A and 5A high school varsity soccer state championship games at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City. Conor McGahey received the most votes of any referee in the state and Kim McGahey had the second highest votes, qualifying them both to officiate the games.
Kim’s 4A Final between Battle Mountain and Palmer Ridge was played in a 35-degree snowstorm and went through full regulation time and two overtimes without a goal. It was settled in penalty kicks favoring Battle Mountain.
Conor’s 5A Final between Boulder and SMoky saw the Boulder team dominate in a decisive 3-1 victory. This is the eighth consecutive year the McGaheys have been selected to referee the state final high school games. Both referees were founders of local soccer clubs and are active in state boards that govern soccer referees and players.
