    Mark Halsey, the referee, struck the right note with his marshalling of the game.

    not a teacher

    Here, "to marshal" means to control and manage, particularly with regard to the referee's interaction with players at different points of the game.
    So the referee was probably firm and fair in the way he controlled the game, dealt with the players and moved things along.
