The mark of a good striker includes having a nose for goal and being able to score even without trying and by that standard, the University of Oregon's Achijah Berry is the next Chicharito. In a match against Oregon State last week, the last of the season, OSU goalkeeper Sammy Jo Prudhomme blasted a clearance off the side of Berry's face from point-blank range, causing the ball to bounce back into her own net.
Though it looked like Berry was (understandably) turning away from the ball when it hit her, she took it in stride and was all smiles when her teammates ran over to celebrate/see if her face was OK.
Oregon went on to win 2-0.
