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!
