Margaret Domka officiated during Wednesday’s 2012 Algarve Cup championship between Germany and Japan.
Though the U.S. Women’s National Team came up short of playing in the 2012 Algarve Cup championship, there was a U.S. presence on the officiating side of the finale with Wisconsin native Margaret Domka serving as referee.
Domka worked the pitch during Germany’s thrilling 4-3 victory against 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup champion Japan on Wednesday at Estadio Algarve in Faro, Portugal. Earlier in the day, the U.S. blanked Sweden 3-0 in the third-place game at Estadio Municipal in Parchal, Portugal.
Domka recently was selected to officiate the CONCACAF Women’s Olympic Qualifying tournament in January in Vancouver, Canada. She has officiated in both the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup and the 2008 Olympic Games.
The Stevens Point, Wis., native played collegiately as a defender for the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.
