Took three guys to carry him off the field.
That ball was fired from about 15 yards in from the corner toward the goal.
So it had some speed to it.
It happens from time to time in may sports, never pleasant!
I once saw a golfer hit his tee shot into a ball washer and then ricocheted into the groin area of a spectator.
Talk about irony.
Probably a 3 or 4 Wood!

He made the save, I might add.
And he stopped all but one of 17 shots on goal after this before the half.
It was senior night, so they pulled him in order to get the OTHER goalie, also a senior, some time in the last home game of the regular season.
"Honestly, ump, I was only aiming for hi.... er, the ball!"
This is part of a sequence shot at 6.3 frames per second for two seconds.
I was standing between two television cameramen. All three of us reviewed our take of the incident immediately and came to the conclusion a card should have been issued but wasn't.
Red, you're clearly not used to seeing tackles in proper football...
The more you watch, the more you'll see like these....

But that photo is of a goalie in the box getting booted to the face.
