Any kind of data is proof that some part of the game is completed.
If I’m shown proof of the scores after ball 1 as a TD, then there’s no longer a ‘full restart’. There’s the scores recorded plus 2 more balls for each player.
I could take a picture of a huge score after ball 1, have a crappy ball 2 score, intentionally not take a picture, so if there’s a catastrophic malfunction at that point I can get a new ‘ball 2’ . . . depending on how “Lefkoff” you want to get with it
