You know what this spring sports season has needed? A crazy full-field lacrosse goal. Thanks to Ohio State signee Evan Riss, we’ve finally got one.
Riss, a starting defenseman for Oakland Mills in Maryland, was competing at Calverton when he found himself loosely guarded while bring the ball up on a clear. When a Calverton attacker finally came forward to stop his slow progress upfield, Riss heaved the ball downfield … and saw it soar 65 yards, finally coming down right above the stick of the Calverton goalie for a goal.
In fact, even Riss found his feat hard to believe, as he admitted in the comments after he posted his miracle goal on Twitter:
Fair enough, Evan Riss. Fair enough. You still just scored one of the goals of the season, one heck of a launching pad toward your next career at Ohio State.
