GOALIE GOAL! I Repeat: GOALIE GOAL!

Lehigh's Matt Poillon turned the trick against Bucknell's 10-man ride on Friday night.

Ask . . .

. . . and ye shall receive. Let's break this down.

0:03: Poillon snags the errant shot and Lehigh gets into their clear. Not an unusual situation, mostly because Poillon is a soul-eater in the crease.

0:08: Poillon outlets to the restraining area, clearing the ball from the middle of the field. Again, nothing usual here. Bucknell is settling into their pressure, but the world hasn't spun sideways yet.

0:14: Poillon collects the ball about 15 yards from his cage. Lehigh is in their substitution pattern. Space aliens have yet to control everyone's brains at this point.

0:15: Poillon's inner monologue: "WHERE AM I GOING WITH THIS?! DON'T WANT! DON'T WANT! THE LACROSSE BALL IS FIRE AND I'M HIGHLY FLAMMABLE!"

0:17: Poillon's inner monologue: "Screw it. I'm going deep."

0:21: Goal. That's just the way you draw it up -- a 75-yard strike from your goalkeeper over and through the 10-man ride.

0:23: Poillon's inner monologue: "THE OPPOSING GOAL IS ON FIRE! I'M HIGHLY FLAMMABLE BUT IN THE GOOD KIND OF WAY! NO WIND SPRINTS FOR ME ON MONDAY!"
