Video: 51-yard free kick for the winSee the senior goalie execute a heroic boot from way far away.
Goalie Megan McClure
of Webster Groves (Mo.)
is used to stopping goals. She decided to get on the other side of things Thursday night with a jaw-dropping boot.
The senior somehow blasted a game-winning 51-yard free kick in the 56th minute to top Rockwood Summit (Fenton, Mo.) 1-0. Her teammates dogpiled on her in a jubilant celebration after the big goal and the Statesmen made it stand.
It's pretty rare for a keeper to notch a shutout and tally the game-winning goal, thus why McClure's big play was featured on ESPN's SportsCenter.
The crucial goal gave the 20-win Statesmen their third-straight Missouri Class 3 District 3 championship. Webster Groves will host Visitation Academy (St. Louis, Mo.) in sectional play on Tuesday.
