[VIDEO PICK] That age-old tradition of intentionally kicking the ball out of bounds so an injury can be treated, to be followed by the inbounding team delivering the ball back to the opponent, went awry in a minor league English game -- leading to a couple of bizarre goals.

The Havant & Waterlooville Hawks were up, 1-0, against Boreham Wood when a Hawks player went down and a teammate struck the ball out of bounds. But when Mario Noto sent the ball back to the Hawks it found its way into the net. All's well that ends well thanks to how Borewood Wood's players defended on the Hawks' ensuing kickoff. ...

Wes Fodgen's goal off the kickoff was the Hawk's gamewinner in the 2-1 victory.

    This is an example of the best of the beautiful game!

    That was a total class reaction after what the blue team knucklehead did after the throw-in, the f-bombs after the 1st goal certainly provided additional flavor.

    Everybody makes mistakes, but it's nice when they can be so easily rectified and people do the right thing. Entertaining!
