Goalie goal! Denver Outlaws’ Jack Kelly scores from forever away, opposing goalie can’t believe it

Tuesday’s Major League Lacrosse game between the Denver Outlaws and Atlanta Blaze featured the rare goalie goal.

With time winding down in the third quarter, Outlaws goalkeeper Jack Kelly intercepted a pass and launched a prayer to the opposite end of the field. Kelly’s heave caught Blaze goalie Adam Ghitelman off guard and got by him — a rare instance of goalie-on-goalie crime.

Ghitelman appeared to be going for a drink of water during the sequence. Once he saw the ball get by him, he threw his water bottle down in disgust.

It was a rough day for Kelly all around. He gave up 18 goals as the Outlaws beat the Blaze 24-12.
