  • Soccer: Is this Freak Goal a Common Occurance?

    I have spectated more than 200 youth soccer games in the last seven years but don't recall ever seeing this before yesterday.
    Boys U14, E-W regulation field.. 40-50 mph WSW tail wind..goalie kicking from own box.. ball hit ground at front of far end box, bounced over defending (best in league) goalie for a goal. :?
    Adding insult to injury: it was the winning goal in the last minute of play

    It is rare, I think, but it does happen. Here is Tim Howard scoring for Everton a couple of years ago.

    I think someone else in the premier league did it this year, but don't recall who.

      I've seen that several times in youth and HS games (and Howard's). Good wind + hard ground + rugby-style kick = THIS.
