Gratifyingly curious experience
Submitted By: Mark Pendleton
My son plays left forward on a U-14 team here in Las Cruces New Mexico USA.
Recently during the city championship tournament (which they won for
bracket) he had a gratifyingly curious experience. He received a cross
right forward, dribbled around the defender who was marking him and shot
goal. The keeper caught it. Now comes the curious part. My son was
only about 5
yards away, and watched in wonder as the keeper set the ball down and
away in preparation for a goal kick. Christopher decided that he'd
advantage of this "gift". He walked up to the ball, and as the goalie
around to take his goal kick, calmy tapped the ball into the opposite
the goal. This was the goal which sparked a comeback from losing 4-0
to a 4-4
draw. None of us who saw this will forget it for a long time.
