It's still early, but this may very well be the prep soccer goal of the season.
The video you see above comes from a Georgia boys soccer match between Clarke Central (Ga.) High and Flowery Branch (Ga.) High. In the midst of a thorough drubbing, Clarke Central sent in a long ball over the top to a striker, who fired off a quick shot.
That attempt was miraculously -- and perhaps fortuitously -- saved by the Clarke Central goalie. The problem was that the effort ricocheted back off his face and right to the waiting feet of Clarke Central midfielder Tristan Trevino.
That's when Trevino pulled off one of the more magical volleys you'll see, controlling the ball with a right-footed touch to himself and then launching a remarkably accurate 30-yard drive at the cage ... which got there just in time for the scrambling goalkeeper to reach the goalmouth and accidentally tip it in.
Game, set and match, and possibly goal of the season.
Naturally, for all competitive purposes the game was essentially over long before Trevino's long distance effort found its way in. After all, Clarke Central already led 6-0. Still, Trevino's effort put a very fine gloss on a heck of an early season victory, one which the Clarke Central players and fans will probably remember for some time thanks to the midfielder's long ranger.
