Some may recall that there was a delay during Friday's first round game between Dalhousie and Saskatchewan but few knew what specifically created the delay. Veteran OUA West official Al Robinson, working another Nationals, unfortunately had to leave the game as he was experiencing tightness in his chest. (Delay was to allow the back up referee to take over for Robinson).
Apparently Robinson did not feel 100% prior to the game but chose to try to gut it out but could not finish due to the chest pains. Robinson checked into the hospital and tests later revealed that he had suffered a coronary. Fortunately, doctors were able to detect the issues and Robinson should be released from the hospital later this week after a stint is inserted. Best wishes to Al as he recovers from a situation that is very familiar to some.
