[VIDEO] LSU goalkeeper Mo Isom's goal on a 90-yard free kick made ESPN's "SportsCenter," cracking the top-five plays of the day at No. 4 on the countdown originally aired during the 10 p.m. broadcast.

[VIDEO] LSU goalkeeper Mo Isom's goal on a 90-yard free kick made ESPN's "SportsCenter," cracking the top-five plays of the day at No. 4 on the countdown originally aired during the 10 p.m. broadcast.

By midnight, it was No. 3.

Her incredible feat led Sportscenter anchor Scott Van Pelt to say, "Laissez les bon temps rouler, a wonder strike from Mo Isom! Now, I wonder if that should be No. 1."
 
"And to actually make it on 'SportsCenter' is unreal," said Isom. "I'm just happy that I was able to do something to help my team win. That kind of exposure is tremendous for our team."

Isom's prowess on goal kicks and punts were one of the reasons Coach Brian Lee recruited her.

"She also adds a new dimension to our team because she can punt the ball 75 yards and her goal kicks are excellent," said Lee in his preseason analysis. "She may even take some free kicks in the opponents' half of the field, which is an added weapon to our attack."

Added Lee after Isom's goal, "That one play just shows the kind of class that Mo Isom has on the soccer field. She certainly gives us an added dimension in the attack with her ability to take punts and free kicks, but no one ever expects a goalkeeper to actually score a goal. In all my years of coaching, I've never seen anything like that before. It's truly remarkable."
