Answer provided by Referee Gary Voshol

Assuming the ball crossed the goal line between the goal posts and under the crossbar, yes that counts as a goal from a corner kick. If the ball crossed the line not in the goal, it would result in a goal kick.

Answer provided by Referee James Sowa

Yes, a goal can be scored directly from a Corner Kick. As Referee Voshol pointed out, the ball must remain in play until the ball crosses the goal line between the posts of the goal.
