  • Iowa girls' soccer duo pulls off spectacular flip throw-in goal

    Ben Rohrbach at Prep Rally2 hrs ago

    The flip throw-in is always one of the most enjoyable soccer moves — if only because of the acrobatics required to pull it off — but the display of athleticism is always more enjoyable when it leads to a goal.

    And this tally, courtesy of senior Brianna Pike's spectacular assist to junior Ali Herdliska,  actually gave Solon (Iowa) High a 10-0 lead, mercifully ending a victory over West Liberty.

    Pike and Herdliska combined for three goals and two assists in the win, none more spectacular than this.

  • D.C. area sophomore skies for superhuman alley-oop dunk a la Grant Hill

    A.J. Wilson's glasses may give off more of a Clark Kent vibe, but this dunk is straight Superman.

    Competing for D.C. Premier this past weekend, Wilson threw down a one-handed alley-oop from Alani Moore that brought back memories of Grant Hill's 1991 NCAA championship game slam.

    The 6-foot-7 Wilson is reportedly one of the fastest rising recruits in the Class of 2016, and he's been showing off his talent early and often in the AAU season.

    AJ Wilson (Duval 2016) best leaper in the gym. Don't be fooled by the glasses the kid has been showing off his hops all afternoon. #BeElite

  • Utah prep lacrosse player converts remarkable 75-yard goal at the buzzer

    Jacob Mika has just one point this lacrosse season, but it may just be the goal of the year when all is said and done. And it didn't come from hotbeds like Batlimore or Long Island, but rather Sandy, Utah.

    The Waterford junior defenseman corraled a rebound and unleashed a 75-yard prayer that somehow found its way past the Riverton goalie before the end of the first quarter, as evident in the YouTube video provided by Prodigy Productions. The goal gave Waterford a 7-0 lead en route to a 17-3 blowout and marked the first tally of Mika's three-year career.

    “I’ve been playing and coaching lacrosse for 35-plus years and I’ve never seen anything like it,” Waterford coach Dave Brattin told Utah Lacrosse News. Few have, although Washington (D.C.) Gonzaga defenseman Matt Borda connected from 80 yards in the final seconds of a 2011 conference title game.
