Serious Backspin: Goalie Saves Game-Winning Penalty Kick…Then Doesn’t [VIDEO]
With the South Carolina state championship on the line, Lexington High goalie Jacob Parton had to make a big save to keep his team alive. And he did! But then…he didn’t. Check out the video to see how.
Parton stopped the penalty from Irmo High’s Mattison Gossett and stood up to celebrate, but Gossett put so much backspin on the shot that it bounces and spun into the net for the game-winning goal!
You have to feel for Parton, but the old sports cliche is true — it ain’t over ’til it’s over.
