Upside-down goalie makes save!
Submitted By: Jill Robbins

In a youth soccer league in San Antonio, Texas, we had a restles little goalkeeper. During the match, the little guy was bored and started climbing in the net. As to be expected, the momentum of the game changed. The other team was breaking down the field into our half. The goalkeeper, suddenly realizing what was happening went to jump down out of the net but his foot was caught. He hung upside-down in the net briefly (meanwhile all of the parents and coaches were frantic and hollering to get his attention) and eventually worked his way free, dropped to the ground, scrambled to his feet and managed to save what seemed to be a sure goal for our opponents. In spite of the heart attack we almost had at the time, we still get a laugh from that one!
