You-Call-It #27


Exciting match goes to extra time then requires Kicks from the Mark to decide the outcome! We stand tied after the first 5 pks and now its sudden death! The excitement is intense, the red team taking its sixth shot scores and now the other blue team must score or it is all over! The blue Pk shooter runs up and hammers a high hard one but the red keeper guesses correctly and dives the right way, the ball hits him and rebounds way up in the air. Jubilant the keeper is running out fist pumping shouting with joy! The Pk shooter crestfallen stands dismally as the spinning ball returns to the ground and begins spinning its way back into the goal. A spectator runs onto the pitch and scoops the ball up just before it clearly would have crossed the goal line under the crossbar and between the posts. The referee blows the whistle!
