You sprint up the sidelines, dribbling left and right, avoiding defenders. Your winger sprints on the opposite side of the field — it’s two on one. The goalie comes out to meet you just as the ball leaves your foot and soars through the air toward your teammate. He jumps up and his head connects squarely with the ball — as the energetic crowd goes silent.
