Keeper Own Goal: Blunder or Bad Luck?
[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.
