SEWANEE, Tenn. - People at Sunday's LaGrange-University of the South (Sewanee) game got to see a one-of-a-kind goal.
LaGrange junior Kristian Javier scored with a "bicycle kick" move in the Panthers' 3-2 loss to the Tigers. The move is usually one seen on the professional level but rarely executed on the collegiate level.
The play occured in the first half with the Panthers trailing 2-0. With his back to the goal, Javier flicked the ball back over his head into the net to cut the deficit in half. It was the second goal in as many days for Javier, who had missed the Panthers' first three games.
The Panthers tied the game with 12 minutes left. The Tigers turned the ball over in front of their goal and freshmman Matthew Morton was there to pounce on the ball, putting it in the back of the net to tie the game. It was Morton's first collegiate goal.
Sewanee got the game-winner with less than two minutes left as the Panthers are now 0-5.
