[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] The video of Iona's fluke goal against Fairfield University quickly went viral with headlines such as "Epic Fail" and "All-time Great Howler," but we think those takes on keeper Matt Turner's misfortune is a bit harsh.

Iona Freshman Jordan Scarlett's long-range shot hit the crossbar and bounced straight up.

What goes up must go down, and the ball returned just inside the crossbar, making it extremely difficult to handle for Turner, who's team ended up losing 2-1.

    Come on! "Whose team", not "who's team"! Doesn't anyone care about the language any more?

    C'mon Mike. Don't you think a college-age keeper should be able to do a simple tap over the bar ??

    for any of you who have ever played baseball will know that when playing catcher it is extremely hard to catch a simple pop fly from that angle (going away from you not coming at you). When turned towards your own goal it is really tough to judge. yes he should have tipped it over the bar but those arent balls you practice catching. big moment plus a strange occurance equals being a goalie sucks. keepyour head up kid

    David, there are still some of us out here who care about the language...but, I've noticed, smart phones sometimes do evil things to messages I'm trying to type.
